INTRODUCTION TO THE VATICAN'S POWER POLITICAL STATE
To be able to have a good idea of the Vatican's power administration, I ought to make reference to the millennial organism that functions in this Roman dictatorship and copies from the empire of the Cesar, which is preserved unto this day in the Catholic system, its continuation. Here is the organism. The tiara or Papal Egyptian blazon, which represents papal infallible authority, an indelible seal of the monarchical prerogatives of the political state of the Vatican, we see appearing in all the dioceses of the Catholic World. This seal and its meanings are significant in order for you to be able to distinguish the Episcopal or abatable miters, another insignia of authority, from the papal tiara. During the centuries, the Vatican has created a Science apart from heraldry, with all the combinations of architectural art, symbols and colors of the ecclesiastical vestments, etc... I recall in Seville my parochial insignias: the emblems, colors, shoes with silver buckles, bottoms, solideos, pluvial capes, roquetas of the fine linen and embroidered in the best factories with fine gold thread, etc. And I was only a parson (vicar) then. You many take for granted the many uniforms of Cathedral beneficiaries, canons, royal chaplains pages and thousands of liturgical wardrobes of the most fine fabrics of Arabia, of various colored silk for every day of the year (blue for Mary's Immaculate conception, December 8; red for the Holy spirit, etc). To continue, visit the cathedral museum or any other museum in the Vatican, basilicas, sanctuaries, etc, and you with your

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN

own eyes will comprehend the prodigality of the finances, offerings and other money you offer to God to be distributed among the poor. I remember that in expo 92, which is celebrated in Seville, Spain, from the pavilion of the Vatican one could see the whole Museum of Art in gold, from monstrance's, chalices, , and liturgical instruments to unnecessary pectorals, crucifixes of the most fine silver, kilates in gold, etc. In my mind, I could not but recall the armed robbery and despoilment committed by the Catholic Church's deathand-blood plunderers, who called themselves the representatives of Christ's Church, upon their arrival to the Americas, destroying not only the natives cultures in blood and fire but also taking their patrimony. It was the moment of the Spanish Renascence and its ally the Spanish Pope Alexander VI, whose abominable lifestyle and Vatican corruption go to germinate the New World. The worst thing about these abuses was that they were done in the name of Christianity. And to confound and deceive, Americans were regularly chosen for the evangelization of the native people or tribes. Let the lector remember that the many cathedrals and all these sacred vases embossed with the most precious and appraised stones of the most renowned and famous European goldsmiths, silversmiths, artists and architects internationally, and the schools whose artworks, imagery, glass cases, alter pieces, retable, choral chairs, etc, were all part of the European, Spanish, Flemish, etc, Renaissance. When I have visited the Mexican Cathedrals and their museums in the Church of Santo Domingo, all in gold, I was amazed. I could not comprehend in the least how, being on the frontiers of the starving natives, they allowed them to die of famine, sicknesses, abandonment, etc. I could better

6

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

comprehend where their offerings ended up; and how the missionaries sent to Mexico by the Vatican continue to rule and rob (by armed robbery) the riches and tithes belonging to the poor, wretched natives. If these Vatican thieves would dedicate themselves to distributing those riches to the native population, it would no doubt solve the problem. Mexico is still a country where millions of natives still live in extreme poverty, without being rescued by civilization. The Vatican's finances are easily known when, as this servant, one has dedicated his whole life to the investigation and auditing of her financial structure. The few times, I have been allowed to do any investigating on the administration of the Vatican and her dioceses, which I've been called to serve as a monsignor and member of the diocesan finance committees, what I found was very troubling. But the new democracies now open a horizon of hope of being able to properly inform the people, who pay their taxes for religious services, which are generally patronized and sponsored by the convents, seminaries, churches and priests, of how their offerings to God are being spent. They are infallible proofs of her formidable riches.

VATICANISTS AND CURATES EXPOSE THE VATICAN
Now in the 20th century, as we approach the Third Millennium, historians of the Vatican and of the Catholic Curia have been able to tip the information outlets concerning the Vatican's finances, a subject very jealously guarded and prohibited to talk about (under penalty of excommunication). The new democracies and their scientific advances have made it possible to demand from the Vatican the aperture of her secret archives, to put the reality of the state of her finances on the carpet, and to show the world, including Catholic, where their offerings, which are collected in all the world, end up. A growing number of journalists, representing the news media, and who are commissioned and paid for the task, have made their residence in the Vatican, associated as specialists in Vatican affairs and, consequently, in her curia repercussions in the entire world. I insert their names and documented books in the biography at the end of this book. Gordan and Witts, in their book "Inside the Vatican, Behind Today's Sensational Headlines, Pontiff," have known how to scrutinize and gather very valuable statistics on the Vatican's finances, and they have helped us unmask, once and for all, the occult mystery of Catholic money. In page 399, he gives us an account of the millions which are spent on the Salaries of cardinals, officials, soldiers, servants, new appointments, and papal representatives all over the world, and of the millions which are invested in papal delegates, apostolic nuncios, all the diplomats with the right to palaces, scholastic diplomas or

8

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

academic degrees from the Gregorian university; thousands of personages who live the dolche Vita (sweet life), and without selling so much as a broom, as the popular refrain states. All of them occupying political functions for which not even the embassies of Russia or of the United States invest larger budgets. The millions of dollars received by nuns, friars, priests, monsignors, and bishops with political missions and consignments, which are programmed yearly, add up to millions and millions, and their bookkeeping is accomplished in the same way as the offices established in the Vatican, in the following order: The Administration of the Diocese of Rome, whose chief and Monarch is the pope himself, to whom all must render accounts from the cardinal vicar, who represents the pope, to the 20 offices which exist in the political state of the Vatican, which include the following: A) The college of cardinals, responsible for electing new popes and assembling councils and conferences. B) The Synod of Bishops, special Dutch Synods, Ukrainian, extraordinary, etc.. C) Maintenance of buildings, museums, patrimony of the Vatican, personages related to the pope, etc. D) Secretariat of State or the Ministry of foreign Affairs. E) Assistant Secretary Ministry. F) The office of Statistics; in which we can analyze her false listings, which she desires to show to millions of faithful Catholics seeing they answer not to reality. G) Twelve mighty congregations (also) exist for the Doctrine of the faith, besides the International Theological and Biblical commissions, whose thousands of members and commissioned associates are they who

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN

supervise the books in the dioceses, and who impose the Nihil obstate Imprimatur. They that manage the INDEX or SYLLABUS of prohibited books and authors. H) The congregation of Bishops, to which none can be name without first being recommended. I) The congregation of clerics; where all of us clergymen appear and our record of obedience is stored. J) The congregation for religious and secular institutes run by more than 600 men and 800 women, with thousands of members and very diversified Catholic Statutes, with thousands of dwellings, colleges and properties, which should (do) contribute substantial quantities to her coffers. K) The congregation of Sacraments and of Divine Adoration of the Liturgy. L) The congregation for the causes of the Saints, Beatification's, canonization's a real fountain of revenues, never mind they may never have even existed, so long as they pay millions to the Vatican's coffers. M) The congregation for oriental (or Eastern) churches. N) Evangelical Proselytism. O) Catholic Education.... Twelve powerful congregations, and with their very carefully selected leaders: Jesuits, etc.

THE STATE OF NATIONAL CATHOLICISM AND ITS ORGANIZATIONS There exist not, upon the face of the earth, a better organized dictatorship, and which has maintained herself for so many centuries, than the Fascist political state of the Vatican. She has known how to use the name of Christianity astutely, and has willed to represent Christian values thus confusing and deceiving millions. When the reality is . . . that her works and corruption could never represent the true Christian Church. Her satanic offices, bearing the most sacred names, still function, in this 20th century, as well or better than in the previous, bloody centuries, and all of them divide the millions in offerings, which should go to the poor and needy: if so be that they really want to fulfill the evangelical precepts. The administration of the Vatican State, in the hands of unscrupulous bankers as Michele Sindone, a financier friend of John Paul II now interned in a New Jersey prison, together with the Archbishop Marcinkus, banker exceptional of the Vatican, led the Vatican's finances into bankruptcy. We all know of the many denunciations against Bank Ambrosiano, and the scandals brought to the public light in the international press. The cardinal John Cody, archbishop of Chicago, the most controversial American archbishop, whose money management and doubtful morality impede not his entry to the Vatican, because of his friendship with Marcinkus and the pope, is another of those intimate friends who spend the budget with us dickering. I don't have the space to continue citing the money managers in the Vatican. Suffice it to say, that I have a list of twenty priests, cardinals, Irishmen, Spanish, and including Latin Americans, who live the

sweet life at the expense multimillion dollar budgets.

of

the

Vatican's

The administration of the Vatican continues in a crisis in like manner as her parishioners collectively, who can no longer be told just anything about how their offerings are being managed, and no longer accept the bad examples that all these thieves (John 2: 13-17), who claim to be evangelizing in the name of Christ and to be in charge of the spiritual direction of souls, have set. Instead of saving souls, these hypocrites are leading them to eternal perdition. The technical services used by the Vatican, and directed by ambitious Jesuits, diplomats, nunciatures, and commissioned diplomats in UNO, UNESCO, etc, including the following: secretaries for the Union of Churches (budgets to finance works with other religions of non Catholic believers; the ecumenical movement, etc), Pontifical Commissions for the family and culture (for justice and peace, Cor Unum aid, etc), science and archeological academics and organizations, commission for non-clerical secularists, Penitential Tribunals (for cases of conscience), the powerful offices of the Sacred Roman Rota (for divorces, ecclesiastical Penal judgments, etc), Signature Apostolic (for imposing penalties, excommunications, etc), offices for economic questions and aid (welfare) works, etc. And never mind the Vatican's so perfectly structured organi s m (which we cease not to cite) and how she administered her might millions (or billions), which make the Vatican and her functionaries as deified dominators who better appear, to us anyway, to form part of an exclusive Mafia.

12

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

For under the guise of a Christian Church she has deceived millions and millions of both Catholic and Protestant believers. I also ought to make mention of the Opus Dei, the only Exempt Institute of the Dioceses, and which has now superseded all the other religious orders, including that of the formidable Jesuits (who are fallen into disgrace), and whose members in these moments are they which are in charge of naming the new nuncios, archbishops, and Castrenses in Latin America. Their bank accounts and multinational businesses manage the Vatican's interests with the complete confidence of Wojtyla, who thanks to their millions, was brought to the pontificate by the same. In these moments the Vatican's deficit has been covered by the finances of the Opus Dei, which has offered million dollars to raise funds and prevent bankruptcy. In these very moments Mexico receives hundreds of Opus Dei members: Nuncios, papal delegates, ambassadors, etc, whose is to take over not only the most productive entrepreneurial assets but also education, news medias, banks, etc. They are already offering, through the dioceses, loans, etc. Thus were they able to impose the Franco dictatorship in Spain, and I was a personal witness of the arrival of the Ultralight capitalists of National Catholicism.

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN

NATIONAL CATHOLICISM CARET NOT FOR SOULS
In my experiences as a monsignor and priest during forty seven years, wherein I have performed diverse ministerial duties, I have come to the conclusion that the Catholic Church's interests are anything but (the) spiritual or the salvation of souls. They are, on the contrary, political and economical interests, and almost every bishop and priest contrives to enrich himself and to live the life of a wealthy capitalist in the name of a poor Christ. If we investigate National Catholicism or the Political State of ultra rightists of the Vatican through history, we clearly see that the crusades, armies of nuns and clerics, are the very same Roman legions which are maintain since the days of Emperor Constantine, who converted the Christian Churches and communities into political strongholds. It was the biggest shock of my life, when parson in Seville, to witness the arrival of the Italian, fascist military columns and nazi armaments, which were blessed and approved of by the Vatican. Who would have told me this? During twelve years of seminary, I was programmed and brainwashed into believing that I was an alter Christ, that is to say, another Christ with the divine powers of doing miracles, absolving sins, and saving souls falsehoods and lies of a church that deceived and brainwashed us. During my ministry in different nations, and my evangelistic missions from the suburbs of Seville, Spain, to the native zone of Panama, and from New York, Puerto Rico, and Mexico to California, my missionary work of San

14

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

Henoc, which I created for the extension of Christianity and the salvation of souls, is but hampered, persecuted, and prohibited. And only for the deed of being for the poor, and for not charging them anything for religious services, to which 1 dedicated primordial attention, I was removed from my parishes, never mind the blessings I always received of the Lord, or the thousands of souls which joined themselves every day unto his Holy Church. At the end. I insert some things related to my missionary work, its magazine, and some data. Upon my return later to Seville, after the ecclesiastical transformation from a Tridentate Church to a church of the second Vatican Council comes to pass, they had just finished destroying the most prosperous diocese of Spain and the most excellent cardinal and priests of the Spanish clergy. I found the parishes without priests, the seminary without seminarians, the convents razed, and the curia in the hands of inept Vicars, secretaries, or economists; companions whom I knew, and they couldn't have chosen a more unqualified lot and of the worst caliber. I have written about the three personages, whom I call the Three Musketeers, who have destroyed artistic treasures, real properties, libraries, museums, etc, and enriched themselves of the foundations and lands which existed: the greatest larceny that could ever be committed in the name of a church that still has the impudence to call herself a Christian Church. I have not the space to cite everything I said in my letter directed to the Archbishop, wherein I make reference to the rectories and parishes in need of priests or spiritual guides, but I demonstrated to him how their contentions that they couldn't give me a parish was not so, considering the many vacancies. And I also showed him

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
15

that in the persecution that they were making me go through they were not fulfilling canon laws and obligations which a bishop is supposed to have with his priests. But they cared not in the least that I was homeless, or had no dwelling, or that I was entrusted with the care of abandoned souls. They cared not if I found myself without a profession that, according to out ordination, is "in eternal ultra," that is to say, for the rest of my life. Everything was turning out to be but lies and falsehoods, and the souls of Christian priests would continue to be persecuted, neglected, canceled and without canonical rights. Among the forty dwellings and rectories which were unoccupied, and whose locations and settings I pointed out to the bishop, was the one which I occupied with my family and mother before marching off to the mission fields with my licenses, without losing my rights for when I returned. And in the same way that they deprived me of my home, so that I couldn't organized myself, so they also deprived me of my social rights. For I had not dedicated my evangelization, as the majority of Spanish missionaries and friars, to the hoarding, that is, stealing, of money so that I could have a cozy retirement with my very own house and rent to survive. I couldn't even solicit the residence that had always existed in Seville for retirement priests because the diocese had destroyed it. And in the Archiepiscopal Palace is now installed a luxurious

hotel.

MARCINKUS AND VAGNOZZI: THE VATICAN'S POWERFUL BANKERS
We historians of the Vatican have been able to break the reticent silence that has always been maintained as dogma and canon in relation to the Vatican's finances. She has always excommunicated her critics and silenced them by dismissing them from their ecclesiastic charges, never mind that they are universal theological figures as Hans Kung, Rahner Ratzinger, etc (I have not the space to continue citing them all); I insert most of them in the biographies at the end of my books. The famous (or infamous) banker and archbishop Marcinkus, an American who is a very good friend of Wojtyla, and who scandalized the world with his malfeasance and misfeasance in managing Vatican money, together with his friend the cardinal Egidio Vagnozzi, head of the prefecture for the economic affairs of the Apostolic Holy See, his financial companion the cardinal Giuseppe Caprio, president of the administration of the patrimony of the Holy See (APSA), and finally the powerful casaroli Sergio Guerri, administrator of the government of Vatican City all these together with the Pope's other cardinals, private secretaries, polish compatriots, Irish priests, National vascos, and Opus Deists are among those which administer the Vatican's finances and pertain to her Holy Mafia. We know this by the limited data that comes to the public light. In 1976, the deficit of the Vatican's finances amounted to $20.2 million. The budget for 1980 amounted to $28 million. The losses just kept increasing inexplicably for the bank supervisors of the five most industrial nations of Europe, which serve as supervisors of the capitals.

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
17

The Vatican (then) presents false account statements, and occults her financial responsibilities to the public. By 1984 the Vatican starts declaring herself in bankruptcy. "The pays," as Morgan Witts very well says, "was in urgent need to consider the matter objectively. Never before had the Vatican acknowledge the state of her finances. During this period we see assassinations, the intervention of the KGB, which tries to exploit the death of Gianpaolo, etc. The Vatican traverses through a vital financial crisis and other serious difficulties from 1975 to 1985. The Pope increases his nepotism, doubles his appointments of cardinals, beatifies and canonizes numerous saints (who never even existed), declares basilicas all over the world, and distributes the privileges of indulgences, monsignors, bishop, etc, to all who could engross the Vatican's empty coffers. The millions he receives from these appointments and indulgences go to remedy to situation; so much more when all over the world programs to re-excavate money are carried out. Greater contributions are demanded of the dioceses, and the religious orders, especially the powerful Opus Dei, are they that absolve the out balance of the bankrupt budget, pay for the Pope's trips and the sale of his promotions, literature, images, collaboration of the most powerful enterprises of the nations he visits, etc: they facilitate the money necessary to continue increasing the Vatican's budget. During Pope Wojtyla's Pontificate, finances are going to be or gani zed and structure with a surplus. The revision, distribution, and centralization of finances so they can be controlled better is being attained; and to historians of this decadent period of Vatican history

18

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

it's a big surprise . . . today, of course no money is being offered to the missions, nor are any meaningful compromises being acquired by third world countries. The statistics which show up on budgets for the poor and/or social institutions, supplied by the collections of DOMUNO or of the propagation of the faith, are not being fulfilled. I was a missionary in Panama and never did I receive any money at all for my poor Indians. It was care and other Protestant organisms which helped generously with foods and agricultural implements. The Vatican's deficit is concentrated not only on the increase of the salaries of her thousands of employees but also because her very powerful news media (L'Observatore Romano, Radio Vaticano, etc) and museums are suffering a crisis. All of their budgets must be trimmed, and to engross his budget, Editorial Edetrice is going to imprint millions of stamps and books. The Pope himself publishes sixteen books, whose prices and translations furnish him with millions of dollars. Thus it is with his other enterprises and commercial properties, which extend all over the world, and which the Opus Dei, the Jesuits, the Dominicans and hundreds of other fanatical orders which obey and work for the Vatican administer, believing that they are doing it for Christ and his successor, Peter. What effrontery!! All lies! The Vatican's finances are a millennial larceny, theft a big fraud!!

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 19 THE COMMITTEE APSA: CONSULTANTS TO THE VATICAN'S FINANCES The Vatican has known to surround herself with the most professional bankers of Switzerland, France, with the Chairmen of Barclays Bank, Allied signal and others of Italy, yeah, and of financial institutions and numerous big businessmen of so-called Catholic States allied to National Catholicism. These counselors meet twice a year and make recommendations. Many already have businesses tied to Vatican money both firms and merchants. They give advice concerning the possible conflicts in the world's stock exchanges, and the most convenient interests to invest in. Thus the Vatican can invest virtually free. The cardinals are the main ones who supervise the Holy See 's finances, and their most rich dioceses support and contribute to them. The Vatican has investments in German marks, Swiss Frances, etc, and we all know hoe the Swiss banks and their super secret accounts harbor money laundering and drug trafficking money. The Vatican also has many i nvest m ents in Latin America, especially in Mexico, and Asia. On page 222 of the report of Monsignor Divine, we are told, "we have participation in the emerging world, in Latin America, Mexico, Asia..." And concerning deposits and purchases of bonds, currencies, liquid capital, the responsible Monsignor Divine tells us: "we stay liquid," that is to say, we keep solid capital. In such a way that their investments and earnings fluctuate some 90 billion in 1933. "The Holy See," P. Reese tells us in page 223, "Also has real estate investments around the world that were valued on the at about 781 million at the end of 1994. That is to say, the Vatican has been acquiring

20

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

and investing in real estate at the highest prices you can imagine, and acquiring substantial profits through the same. I am a witness, in the Diocese of San Diego, of the monopolization of ranch properties, apartments, and retable businesses which the Catholic Church has tried to establish, and of how Mexican pesos are being invested in San Diego. Even parish secretaries allow themselves the luxury of possessing condominiums and houses, which they later rent out in the name of the parish. In Seville I witnessed how the Catholic Church's financial administrators, some of whom were my seminary companions, and certainly of the most poor, undertook the sale of the Christian patrimony received; how the real estate office, right in the archiepiscopal palace, was the most frequented and busy place of all; and how all those ranches were for sale to the highest bidder. It is incredible that so many religious order, which have taken the vow of poverty, in the dioceses of San Diego, from the Franciscans and Carmelite nuns to the Claretians, the claustral nuns, the redemptorists, etc., have so many riches in real estate. I invite you, as this servant has done, to comprehend this amazing paradox; to wit, that the Catholic Church, whose kingdom is earthly, sensual, devilish, and which has completely deviated from her spiritual mission serving mammon, cannot be the true Christian Church, whose present kingdom is not temporal, but spiritual, holiness....The Vatican's buildings in Italy alone are appraise at about 1.150 billion; outside of Italy they are some 700 billion in properties (A TRILLION ? ). The Vatican's net profit in real estate in 1994 totaled some 19 billion. The congregation for the evangelization of the peoples, better known as the congregation for the Propagation of the faith, administers, at the end of 1994,

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
21

some 94 billion in securities and pay guarantees, some 11 billion in liquid capital, etc. Also, the congregation for e as t e rn c hu r ch es and of propaganda, administers approximated 26 billion as of 1993. This is also goes with the universities and seminaries, the roman collage, etc, in missionary countries. Is this the catholic church that wants us to believe that she is poor? The Vatican also receives 24 billion (or more) from her worldwide dioceses yearly, and 2 billion more from her innumerable religious orders. That's also why we can find schools and pontifical activities in every monastery and parish, which are to send their 31% monthly to Rome. Have you ever really ruminated on all the monies received by Parochial schools, colleges for religious and for religious, from alll over the world, and more than 800 congregations with enormous enrollments? If you are a teacher, as this servant, or the father of a family, you can understand the magnitude of the business that the Vatican manages with her colleges, universities, educational institutions and social programs. It's time already to separate education from business from doing business with it, that is. I have a doctorate in Philosophy and Educational sciences. And as a professor and teacher preaching a pseudo Christianity in her institutions, I acknowledge and am a personal witness to how she occults her Mafiosi interests.

THE CANONICAL RIGHT AND THE ADMINISTRATION OF GOODS
The Canonical Right, or the constitution of Vatican State, which we are made to study in seminary, constitutes the Civil Right. Part of its canons, the product of the Jus Romanum, is maintained today in the Catholic Church, augmented and corrected more every year; and it is the foundation of all her legislation's. The new universal Canonical Right, published in 1983 by the Library of Christian Authors (I'd call it, rather, Catholic Authors), relates all the Vatican's administrative functions, and decrees that all the Catholic dioceses of the world are bound to obey it, as all the other canons, I urge you to consult it so that you can better understand me. on page 425, in the definitions of General Principals explaining canon 1254, 1, we are told: "that by native right (birthright), and independent of the civil power, the Catholic Church can acquire, retain, administer, and alienate temporal wealth to attain her own ends." Also canon 1255 says: "That the Universal church and Apostolic See, and also the particular churches there of, and any other juridical person, whether public or private, are subject to and capable of acquiring, retaining, administering and alienating temporal goods according to juridical norms." The Canonical Right has been a fountain of legislation's for centuries and, as the Civil Right, is studied in the universities, from which her cardinals, nuncios, and doctors graduate. The concept of ecclesiastical wealth, and of all the patrimonies and riches possessed by the Catholic

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
23

Church, can be understood by simply doing an inventory and official audit in every nation where the Catholic Churches and convents permit their finances rents, leases, temples, churches, chapels, monasteries, productive businesses, universities, social institutions, cultural centers, etc which are administered by her dioceses' clergy, to be known. One must patiently go about documenting himself on true statistics, as this servant has done for years, investigating in the dioceses of Seville, Puerto Rico, the United States, Mexico, to be able to testify to and make known the truth and reality of the formidable riches of Catholic administrations. I can also add that as a Monsignor, who is as non yet excommunicated, I have been able to assist the assemblies which control pastoral budgets, expenses, and admissions booths to activities collecting money, etc. And I can tell you and explain to you why and how these ecclesiastical hierarchies, and even the most humble vicars and parsons, are enriching themselves. And all that they claim to spend on pastoral programs, pious works, or benefits to the poor, in general, just remain written on paper nothing is fulfilled! All is lost into the bank accounts of these so many thieves, who, in the name of Christ, live the life of good capitalists without having to work. All canons related to the Vatican's finances, if you consult them, from page 226 to page 462, are a genius of juridical wisdom, scholastic; that is to say, a pseudo-philosophy which proves the false for the true; and applies the teachings of the gospels deceitfully to protect themselves and make us understand that all of them are the commandments of Christ himself; and that his vicar and pontiff on earth has received a

24

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

commission to make the genuine Catholic believe that if he obeys not every word he says, he will be excommunicated and damned to eternal fires in the same way that all reformers of her so great Simoniacal corruption are silenced, slandered, and/or defamed so she can attain her goals of enrichment. I have not space to continue enumerating the canons and perceptive laws of the Vatican and her Catholic Churches throughout the entire world. But so that you yourself can have a good idea of the biggest emporium or multinational capitalist enterprise existing upon the face of the earth, you yourself, as this servant does, can start adding the wealth and patrimony acquired for centuries (1500 years) by National Catholicism, a Political State and millennial dictatorship that has accumulated millions of hectares of land, buildings, and pious foundations with hundreds (thousands) of friars, monks, clerics, bishops, etc... all living the sweet life without working.

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 25 THE STATISTICAL OFFICES OR CONGREGATIONS, THEIR FINANCES There are 67 offices in the Vatican, and every one of them has its very own budget that is zealously guarded. One of them is called the propagation of the faith and of evangelizations. It is one of the most important of all, not only for its multimillion budget but also for its organization on an international level for the fathering of funds during the whole year. As a missionary to the Indian Guaymies in the native zone of Panama, I have personally seen the reality of the working of the Catholic Church's hypocritical missionary work and its false doctrine. The millions which all the Catholic world generously offers on the day of DOMUND or Sunday of the propagation of the Catholic faith, as well as during all masses, collegiate, diocesan and parochial activities, only help increase the Vatican's finances, which are used for anything but evangelization, it seems. It is vital to arouse the Catholic conscience and to warn him that neither this monsignor missionary, nor any other missionary who thought he'd receive some of their offerings for to carry out their missionary work, ever receives anything for their poor native zones, and less does there exist a (steady) budget for missions. That money is simply diverted for to enrich the Vatican, whose extremely fierce, sacrilegious appetite devours it irremissibly. In the complete documents of Vatican II, seventeenth edition, page 16, in the message of the Fathers of the second Vatican (Ecumenical) council to all Men (October 21, 1962) we have: "In reality we neither posses human riches nor the temporal power..." and then they quote, or rather, misquote, 7

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

Timothy 2:4 as saying: "who ever collaborates with us to restore a more righteous and fraternal human society in the world ..." - pretty words, and as the Americans say, "nice dream." But the reality is that in practice they are filthy rich and have the terrestrial power; and have created a corrupt society; and that, unfortunately, we have all been collaborating in living this dehumanizing crisis, which has caused us to corrupt true Christian teachings. Her gospel is not the gospel of Jesus Christ, but rather of her canons and dogmatic laws, and of her councils, encyclicals, catechisms and the terrestrial, satanic interests of world National Catholicism, the richest, yeah, the most prosperous multinational enterprise on earth, which continues to deceive the whole world in the name of the poor Christ. In the decree "Ad People," concerning missionary activities, in the constitutions Dogm Lumen Gentium 48 of the pope, we see how a Catholic missionary science is defined, with the inconvenience of all the principles and laws which we have had to learn in seminary to become missionaries. We can now see that the teachings are but scholastic teachings void of rationality. That is to say, they indoctrinate us in numerous doctrines supposedly taken out of the gospels, and then later we see that they are really just doctrines of the Vatican sacred congregation for propagating the faith (sacra congregation de propaganda fide). In chapter VI, in the decree concerning Ecumenism 12 (pg. 314. 392), where missionary laws are imposed, you yourself can comprehend the fair palaver used by the Catholic Church to confuse and, above all, make Catholics believe that it's their sacred duty to support her

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 27 missionary work. And as this servant, you yourself can know the lies and falsehoods of the sacred congregation for the Catholic faith, whose budget is the biggest of the remaining statistical offices of the Vatican. And as we can analyze by my investigative work into papal documents, besides my own living experiences on the mission fields of Panama, where, if it were not for CARE and other International Protestants organizations, I never could have helped my poor Native Indians, who died daily of pestilence and want of all human hope, the Vatican's finances go anywhere but to her missions. I remember once soliciting CLAM and its perfect, Cardinal Ratzinger, for humanitarian aid, the same as the Catholic conference of bishops and caritas, and how they didn't even bother to answer me: this servant knowing of the millions which their budget manage (supposedly) for missionary work. This is the truth! I lived it in my own flesh! And when I refused to impose prices for the sale of sacraments, masses, or religious services, as happened unto me with the poor natives in Seville, Mexico, and California, I was excused from my parish: only for demanding that they abide by what was written in the pastoral program and councils. Is this not a shameful
mockery??

THE RICHES OF VATICAN STATE OR NATIONAL CATHOLICISM
No nation nor empire imperial upon the face of the earth can surpass the Vatican's riches, even though it's the smallest in territory of the world. How, then, was it possible for her, being so little, to hoard and accumulating so many treasures: banks accounts, multinational enterprises, businesses, and bullion through the centuries? Amazing isn't it? When I was a parson in Seville, Spain, I witnessed the arrival of the fascist hosts, together with those of National Catholicism, and I beheld as they went about destroying the riches of the republicans, the protestants, and the flourishing Spanish businesses; and how their homes, bank accounts, and jewels were sacked. They took everything of any value in their path, expropriating the legitimate owners thereof of their lands, palaces, etc, and incarcerated, banished, or murdered them. And neither were the ecclesiastical properties of all those bishops and cardinals who opposed the Vatican spared. The even sacked and/or destroy numerous dioceses (and I repeat I was a witness), and the biggest and smallest seminaries, homes for retired priests, hundreds of historical convents, pious centennial foundations, and many museums, from which very valuable artistic relics, paintings, sculptures, images of Seville's most famous schools, goldsmiths' works and so many other valuable pieces of gold and silver disappeared all the faith of a people which had offered to god for centuries. They sacrilegiously sold it all, and it went but to

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 29 engross the Vatican coffers, yeah, and to buy arms, guns, rifles, tanks and bayonets for to kill republicans, whom she labeled as communists, and union workers, and the republicans army, and priests and religious opponents: a million dead in a bloody, tragic war, and another million either incarcerated, banished, or murdered without mercy. This is how National Catholicism makes her riches. Thus she has been doing it throughout her history in every nation where she has alliance with the governments. In relation to this very subject of most importance, I will recommend that the reader avail himself of the incalculable list in the Index, or the history of the papacy written by non-Catholic Christian historians, or the audits carried out by reformers of the Italian, German, Spanish, and French political states, authors who define and very clearly document the despoilments, thefts and abuses which National Catholicism has committed during all her revolutions in order to put an end to her corruption and crimes. For she has caused the Vatican of today to be a fountain of currencies: an International Bank with which even the most powerful states see themselves obligated to pact and make alliances in order to conquer the world. Seville, in Spain, has always been the primary, the most extensive, the See of Isidoro and Leonardo and of the most famous cardinals in Spain's ecclesiastical history. This servant was a parson in Seville, and his cardinal, Pedro Segura y Saenz, was a very famous man over the diocese with the most priests, convents,

30

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

monasteries, and even the seminary El Palacio de San Telmode los Montpelier Ragalo, and the famous gardins of Maria Luisa, where the most exotic fauna and flora, brought from American, is found. In my doctoral thesis on the discovery of America I dedicate a chapter to narrating these plants, as well as the Zoological Museum, which had thousands of species and new minerals brought from American soil, besides thousands of incunabula's (books printed before 1501, etc), 700,000 volumes with unique collections, etc ... When I was a seminary student, I served as a librarian, and even the section of the classic books of the reformers has completely disappeared. Who sold it? who has stolen the patrimony and riches of this famous seminary palace? Could this be a motive for having been a witness for not wanting to include me as a priest in Seville? Seeing that I wrote about this armed robbery and disappearance? It is incredible that even the very palace has been sold to the Andalusia, Spain Junta by National Catholicism. See, then, how the Vatican acts, and how she takes over the world's riches? Did you know this? The reason is it's hidden from you. The reason is obvious undue enrichment! Theft void of a Catholic consciences . Can you now comprehend the reason for the Vatican's formidable riches and sanitary finances? . Read Avro Manhattan's book "The Vatican in world politics," which is very well documented.

THE MULTINATIONAL ENTERPRISE OF THE VATICAN'S CATHOLIC STATE We Catholics have been deceived concerning the reality of what the most prosperous business in the world is: The Millennial, Multinational, hypocritical Church who with the name of Christianity has been constructing the most formidable Capitalist Empire that could exist in the world. It has taken me more than 40 years to be able to decipher and explain to myself, as a monsignor and parish priest in the different dioceses, where I've exercised my pastoral ministry, how the Catholic state of the Vatican is organized financially: That is, her springs of pecuniary revenues and income, her multinational enterprises, her wealthy banks, her dioceses in very nation, her parishes, her monasteries, her ranches, her author (editorial) rights, her libraries, art collections, real estate, revenues from tourism in her hundreds of cathedrals, her multiple Marian shrines and of saints, Christ of Nazareth, commercialization of religious objects, simony, payments for indulgences and sacramental services, papal certifications, canonization's, beatification's, liturgical books, etc. And I couldn't even begin to enumerate the hundreds of juicy sales made by every diocese and parish through their mercantilist businesses, and concerning which the bishops must render accounts every five years to the Vatican in their "ad liminam" visit, which is demanded of them in the canonical right; and according to which they us answer for all the riches which every diocese, parish, or monastery under their control possesses. A bishop administrator or a parson is sent, and according to the millions in annual

32

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

revenues the Vatican selects the bishop or parson. The parson is to deliver the monies to the bishop, and the bishop to the Vatican and so forth and so on ... So that if he doesn't live up to their (or her) expectations, he is removed from his charge and sent away to a second class parish; or even a third class if he forgets to pay the Mite of San Peter (Peter's Pence?) to the Vatican's saturated coffers. In Seville, for example, where I was a parson, I was able to witness firsthand the arrival of the Vatican's National Catholicism with Franco's dictatorship. All of us had to apportion the parishes for ourselves according to monthly revenues from ranches, foundations, etc, which they had. According to the social category (statues) or ecclesiastical hierarchy of the curate (priest), so the economy of the parish was granted. Thus he was classified, not according to a pastor of souls but as an economist or administrator. The subject of the finances of the Vatican's dioceses, parishes, and of the sanctuaries, cathedrals and basilicas of the Vatican's multinational enterprise, is jealously occulted by the ecclesiastical authorities. They inform not their donors or contributors of the status of how their offerings are distributed, or concerning what part the poor has therein. Neither do they render accounts to the U.S. Department of the Treasury or Ministry of Finances or Economics. If it is true that in a democracy human rights are equal, in democracy, and that every citizen or business must render accounts on taxes, why then do we find that the Vatican, in the name of God, and violating all the laws in not accepting to be a part of the democratic state, is permitted to forget what every other citizen and entity is made to respect; namely, to present her expenses and

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
33

income to the Internal Revenue Service for the common good and progress of the peoples. I have had access to the salaries of the bishops, archbishops, cardinals, nuncios, clergymen, parish priests, parsons, vicars, chancellors, etc, and the opportunity of knowing the financial status of several priests and parsons, and you can believe me when I say that they are lying to us: for they have enriched themselves with the offerings you make to God. In the Diocese of San Diego, alone, where I exercise my ministry, I have been able to document a book wherein I reflect how in this Irish-Catholic church, the same as the Spanish-Basque, Mexican, or PolishCatholic churches, there exists the most shameful mercantilism imaginable, in the name of the poor Christ, and gathered mercilessly with the blood and sweat of the faithful poor, who continue to ignore where their offerings end up. The moment is come, in the new democracies, to expose without fear of excommunications or censures, the realities of the corruption of Vatican state, a multination enterprise that in the name of Christianity is become rich belong dreams, and which still contuse to fill up her coffers at the expense of the ignorance and punishments of conscience which she imposes up her fait h f u l adherents.

THE VATICAN BANK SCANDEL REAPPEARS IN VENEZUELA
In the newspaper "National Catholic Reporter" (Dec. 24, 1993, V. 30, n9, pg. 12), an article written by Peter Hebblethwaite, and titled "Vatican Bank Scandal Reappears in Venezuela," appears, saying: Venezuelan lawyer Alberto Jaime Berti, who administered the Church's finances during the 1970s, has testified to Italian authorities with regard to money laundering. He has revealed and exposed the connections between the (Vatican Bank), the Bank Ambrosiano, and the polish movement of solidarity." The article is inserted under the topic "Political Corruption in Italy." I don't have the space to quote the whole article, but you can solicit it in the Public Libraries of San Diego General Reference Center with the heading Institute per le Opere di Religione (IOR); Periodicals. Bank Ambrosiano S.P.A. Investigations, organizations (of the) Catholic Church in Venezuela. We have at last found out one of the Vatican's most zealously guarded secrets, which demonstrates once again that this corrupt Church can never represent the interests of the true Christian Church, and that she but uses Christianity to benefit herself and hide her true interests of enrichment, money laundering, running businesses, unholy investments, etc; with the Vatican's banks today cornering some 75% of foreign currencies, businesses, etc.. and Opus Dei now being the Catholic Church's new multimillionaires.

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN

The Vatican's financial scandals have shaken the very foundations of the Vatican's administration, and the political corruption of the Italian government itself has been profoundly affected, and the majority of its members found guilty of briberies and incarcerated in connection with the Vatican's scandal. I prefer to translate the article of The National Catholic Reporter 1993. I'll do it literally: "Oxford, England. The scandal of the Vatican's finances has shaken the very foundations of the Vatican's financial administration. It has become a soap opera whose angles have taken us to unexpected discoveries. Alberto Jaime Berti, 55, a lawyer of Venezuela, gave an interview to the Italian seminary L'Espresso, concerning the load of money with interests which has secretly unknown. The Institute for religious works (IOR), also known as the Vatican Bank, The Opus Dei, and the Bank Ambrosiano in one, which declared bankruptcy in 1982, was involved in some $400,000 therein. He also spoke with Italian magistrates, who took much interest in this case. They had the hope that light would be shed on the case of Roberto Calvi, president of Bank Ambrosiano, who eluded the Italian district attorney's office and the money movement control with the help of the IOR. The judges also thought that Berti's revelations could shed new light on Calvi's death, who was found hanged under Black friars Bridge, London, England, June 18, 1982, with a rope around his neck. In Caracas, Venezuela, Berti was the director of the Institution with the Church, a dependent of the Venezuelan Episcopate, for to administer the important patrimony of the

36

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

ecclesiastical wealth. Also, at the usual investigations of the papal nuncio, the Vatican invests, and at the highest level, with ecclesiastical authorities. Thus, for example, we were able to find out that in 1980 a Spanish merchant, Luis Baron Mora Figueroa, came with the Vatican's most secret recommendations to invest $200,000. Berti was put into action. The money was then placed in the account of the Institution with the Church, an Episcopal ecclesiastical entity. The money was invested in Panama in Shell company, whose dividends would later be invested in the New York Stock Exchange, through a brokerage firm, for all kinds of purchases and sales in the market. The Vatican's astuteness and financial experiences (1500 years of experiences), occulted for so many centuries, and her critics and opponents silenced, excommunicated and/or murdered, can now be fully known in the new democracies. The Vatican continues trying to silence opponents and wanting to represent Christianity, but her deeds show otherwise. To receive more benefits from the capital invested, even though it belong to just one person, none of the six investors could touch the money without the prior consent of the others. The profits were equally divided between the institution with the church (in ecclesia) and the anonymous investors. Berti never really knew whom he laundered money for, but he had sufficient evidence to conclude that it was for Bank Vatican, the Bank Ambrosiano, and the Opus Dei, which were all involved. The representative of Opus Dei, Jose Maria Ruiz Mateos, was also president of the merchant group RUMASA.

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
37

(The Opus Dei later broke with Ruiz Mateos and now denies all connection to him). We have also been able to find out many things through other sources: that the Rumasa Group, the Banco Suizo (Swiss Bank) and the Nordi finance bank in Zurich were all really the same bank, which was managed by a director together with four other members of Opus Dei, organizing the firm Limmatstiftung, another Opus Dei foundation in Zurich, which has connected with all the banks of Opus Dei, which are now spread all over the world, and which also invested in Calvi's Bank Ambrosiano. The evidence of Berti assuring Calvi's investments and involvement in the management of money were known two days before his death in 1982: in that Calvi made a desperate call from London asking if he could get his hands on $200 million. Berti answered him and reminded him of the pact and rules of the game: that is, that nobody nor any member could touch the money without the prior consent of the other members. Calvi saw no problem in that because he boasted of his ties with the Institute per le Opere di Religione (IOR) and with the Opus Dei. When he was found dead two days later, Berti concluded that Calvi had miscalculated and was unable to negotiate with the others, IOR and the Opus Dei: they abandoned him in the hour of his greatest need! Berti does not speculate whether Calvi's death was a suicide or assasination. But his evidence suggests that if Calvi felt ruined and desperate, he also known that others would also suffer much discrimination. Berti confessed to his client investors that the money was supposed to pass into the hands of Inecclesia or

38

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

into Venezuela ecclesiastical hands. He explained to the Italian news agency ADISTA, speaking from his exile in London, "That nobody is sure in Venezuela, because nobody dares to investigate this now nor ever! The Catholic Church is absolutely untouchable in Venezuela. This hath been and was (and is) the great, the only advantage: that an investigation that tries to find out or snoop into the origin of these investments could be hated in the very doors of In ecclesiastic. No government leader would dare take the church to the courts in Venezuela. This is the reason why the Archbishop Paul Marcinkus, Pope John Paul II right hand man and the key to the Vatican's finances, who is intimately tied to the scandal, escapes from under every investigation." Berti also affirms that he abstained all his recommendations from the cardinal Egidio Vagnozzi, the apostolic delegate in Washington, who by then was president of APSA (The Administration for the Patrimony of the Holy See), and also from Archbishop Giovanni Benelli, whom he erroneously thought was the secretary of state and a cardinal. This was the chief error, because Benelli in 1970 acted as though he were the secretary of State, presenting himself beside the Frenchman Jean Villot, who had the title. OIR was effectively involved in the scandal. Nevertheless it denies it or even to have knowledge of it. Monsignor Donato de Bonis, who retired from IOR, competitively showed his professionalism and answers that he never knew Berti. Nevertheless he signed many

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
39

of his documents. And Alberti had the key to safeguard the funds of Bank de Genova (Genova Bank) the one of Paris and of the Basque country, which possessed the evidences. Berti's explanation for the denial of Bonis was to be the affect that he had recently left from the IOR to occupy the charge of chaplain of the knights of Malta (another Catholic Institutions as the Knights of Columbus and richer), whose members are privileged leaders a sovereign State, and also having its offices for the management of monies via Condotti, modern Rome and the commercial center. They had complete immunity. Nobody could touch them legally. Berti also thinks that they of Opus Dei will now also fire him from his charge as chief of A in
ecclesia.

ORIGINS OF THE CHURCH'S ECONOMIC POWER IN MEXICO
One of the most documented books about the Catholic Church's riches and origins in Mexico is the one written by John Frederick Schwaller, which he titles origins of the church's wealth in Mexico, Ecclesiastical income and finances of the church (from) 1523 to 1600 (origins of the churches economic power in Mexico)., Incomes Ecclesiastic and finances of the church, 1523. 1600). It was published in Spanish by "Fondo de cultura Economica" (Economic culture fund). In its prologue we are told, "that from her arrival to the New World, the Catholic Church was one of the essential pillars in the spiritual, economic, social, political and military life of the Mexican people. During colonial times, in the 18th century, the Catholic Church was the most powerful institution of the New Spain. Her power and influence in all areas of the development of the New Hispanic life competed with the power of the government of the crown. Even unto the 20th century, she still represented a vital threat to Mexico's central government." It was the Golden Age of National Catholicism in New Granada. After we have finished reading John Frederick's book, we can do a historical analysis of how the Catholic Church achieved her economic power following the guidelines or norms of her multinational corporation: Vatican State. Once we are come to reliable conclusions employing the scientific method, which give me the coordinates for this article, we can better comprehend the Political Despotism and capitalist arrogance maintain by the Catholic Church in this day and age, with her dominating bishops and the riches of

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 41

her religious orders, Opus Dei, Jesuits (The Society of Jesus), Dominicans and a hundred others defying the legitimately elected democratic government. For his study the author executed an extremely careful and diligent investigation in the archives of tithes in Mexico, the divisions of the powers of the numerous religious orders, and the National Episcopal Hierarchy. Therefore he analyzes a great diversity of financial sources, fiscal regulations and historical data, which have helped me conclude that the Mexican Catholic Church, as the Spanish church or the Vatican, very well represents world capitalism, and not Christianity, whose teachings proceed from the truth church of that poor carpenter, Jesus the Christ, whose kingdom is not material or economic; but celestial and of evangelical poverty. The bases upon which the development of the Catholic Church relied are very clearly defined and described in this study, which explains the reason for the ecclesiastical power in Mexico, which unfortunately is ignored by the majority of Mexican Catholics. Let's never forget or ignored that the arrival of the Spanish missionaries, bishops, priests, and militants commissioned by the Monarchical government, representing and dedicated to the Catholic monarchy of the Vatican, both states being their Golden Age, exercised a radical change as rabid dictatorships in the New Lands, which they subdued militaril y and spiritually with unspeakable crimes. The impositions make us comprehend her malignant influences, which continue to be inherited in Mexico and in the Catholic world in general: The Millennial dictatorship that still refuses to democratize and respect human rights, freedom of cons ci ence, of express ion, and of worship according

42

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

to every individual's own conscience and moral. I find, as a monsignor and historian of the church, that the same arrogance and cockiness inherited from the Catholic crusaders of Spain is still maintain in Mexico unto this day. Now that I am retired and have had access to this historical reality of what Christianity really is and what Catholicism is, I plan to continue investigating and documenting myself in the United States' independent libraries of the Public Universities, as well as on the evidence found in federal libraries and historical archives, to be able to offer the Catholic peoples a new, true Catholic and Christian history based on reliable facts without censorship or Nihil Obstat, or worry about the excommunicator INDEX, which is maintained unto this day, and is responsible for the silence of thousands of writers. Who continue ignoring the truth of a Catholic Church that, using the name of Christianity deceitfully, continues to seize and accumulate earthly riches. Her bishops and hierarchies live to serve Mammon, the god of worldly gain, at the expense of the offerings made to God by the poor, faithful believer, which offerings should be divided among the poor, especially the poor, miserable natives in Mexico, who continue to be exploited by the Liberation Theology preach by the Harlot's clergy and leader's as or in the name of Christian.

POWER CLERICAL BUSINESS IN TIJUANA "Third time lucky," so goes a true argument in the popular speech of the people; and after serving as a priest in Spain, Panama, Puerto Rico, Tijuana, Mexico, and San Diego, California for forty years, so it convinces me "that the only thing which really exists these Catholic [Satan] temples is a very rotund spiritual mercantilism, and that evangelical pastorals or pastoral programs are all but extant. That was when I finally understood that I was but a servant of the Vatican state's mercantilism and her qualified merchants, the Mexican bishops: A Political Party of National Catholicism. In Tijuana, for more than a year, I was able to annotate, in the different sacerdotal charges I occupied, as a professor of philosophy in the university de la Ibero American, in the Cety's, rector of the parish Ntra.. Sra. De Guadalupe (Our Lady of Guadalupe) in the River Zone, helper in the cathedral and other parishes, whose charge's d' affaires marched off on vacations, and even a chaplain of nuns, all these things and observe firsthand the spiritual debacle and ambitious mercantilism which exists and is worked out in these institutions. Even now that I am retired, when I visit Tijuana and its Catholic churches, I still find the Tijuana priests depositing the generous offerings of their cathedral in the bank here in San Diego every week, and purchasing their most modern goods and expensive foods in the most luxurious centers. The offerings, requests, and promises made to God, the saints and

44

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

the Virgin Mary by Tijuana, and the religious services they provide at exorbitant prices, debutantes, etc, are truly amazing. I myself celebrate a ceremony in a famous restaurant for a rich family, which paid me $200, etc, etc. The collection boxes and donation plates, the first thing we stumble into in every Catholic church, her rosary beads, medallions, devotional books, etc, etc, clearly tell us that Catholic churches are become dens of thieves and a theatrical business. It seemed ridiculous unto me how, after celebrating Sunday masses in these Tijuana parishes, we priests would sit around counting the mountains of money and ills. A repentant parishioner even deposited an erotic Coin. A mockery!?. The mercantilism that the Tijuana church practices in her temples, religious associations and educative institutions in such that only the rich and wealthy can defray the costs. And that's why there is still so much difference between social classes; that is to say, the middle class has all but disappeared, and all that's left is a 10% privileged class and a 90% slave class that lives in poverty, enslaved by the continuing influences of the Catholic church in our politics, economics, and education, which function according to the interests of the MULTINATIONAL DICTATORSHIP of Vatican state. My experiences in Tijuana as a monsignor and priest were so terrorizing and worrisome for my Christianity, that I had to take the option of COMING OUT OF HER (Rev. 18:4) and refusing to collaborate with so much corruption and immorality of her bishops, priests and several Catholics who reminded me of the

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 45 Catholic Spaniards, who were Catholics only in name and could care less about the poor Christ, who signaled the way to eternal life. It gave me the impression that the Catholic church and her hierarchies in Tijuana seek not to lead souls to the Gospels, but their own selfish interests, which, as the abbot of the Guadalupana sanctuaries, are of this world devilish. Their Preaching in the name of Christ pale quickly when we find out about their riches, rosy bank accounts and dolche vitta (sweet life), which, as the capitalists they are become, they enjoy, thanks to the donations which should be distributed to the poor, miserable natives, to mitigate the poverty of so many Mexicans who still fancy that their salvation rests in the Catholic churches, which are nothing but a mercantilist business. "Yea shall know them by their fruits" (MATTHEW 7:16) and not by their writings or words, nor by the Vatican's political interests. Why construct another new cathedral and Episcopal palace while the poor and needy without bread to eat migrate to the USA in search of work?

POWER ECONOMIC MIGHT IN MEXICO The renewed Vatican's author John Frederick Schwaler, in his book "Origins of the Church's Riches in Mexico," documents the historical process of the Catholic church's economic power, and tells us in his introduction: "That the Catholic Church is the most powerful institution, with a great advantage in the New Spain; even a rival of the government." The political, economic, and spiritual power of the Catholic Church has become a vital danger and present threat to Mexico's central government." The process of enrichment followed by the Vatican's Catholic Church is one whereby she is taking over the riches and patrimony of whole countries: lands, buildings, investments, taxes, markets, ranches, tithes and collections, foundations, sacramental sales, international publications, monasteries of nuns and friars, the sales of indulgences, blessings, benedictions, privileges to the nobility and the rich, charters, the sale of canonization and privileges to clerics, monsignors, cardinals, bishops, archbishops, nuncios, delegates, hundreds of incumbents in all the world, etc, etc. Even the canonization of saints and the reproductions of Marian images, medallions, prayer books, religious articles of gold and silver, liturgical vestments. Gregorian masses and pagan funerals, and the tithes which every diocese of the world is to turn over to the contribution of Saint Peter are all inexhaustible fountains of the millions of dollars which enrich the Vatican. The true history of the Catholic Church and her finances is vet to be fully known, because it has been

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 47 jealously occulted . . .But now in the 20th century, as we approach the third millennium, it is high time for historians, now permitted to glimpse her secret archives (although only partially), to start consulting cardinals and bishops for some facts and explanations concerning the administration of the catholic churches' dealings and over all for audits of the Vatican and Catholic Church's international financial organisms, which would demand of them a clear responsibility to society. We already know that they have been falsifying the facts about their finances and bank accounts . . . not only of their banks but also of their currencies internationally. Schwaller very well points out "that the historians who have written about the church of the end of the eighteenth century and beginning of the nineteenth have considered the Vatican's long process of development... and that we are come to the twenty century recognizing that her economic power is such that if the governments don't know how to act quickly and allow this development to keep growing, she will eventually seize all the political powers and riches of the national patrimony. The financial success of the Vatican throughout history is due to various factors, and different methods have been used in every nation. Spanish America inherited the Vatican's National Catholicism and the Spanish empire's, which imposed their tithes, took over gold and silver mines, enslaved the natives, who were forced to erect her cathedrals, churches and estates, and organized a new social class of Caciques (Sheriff) and rich Creoles, who were named Spanish inquisitors, bishops and friars of the native culture.

48

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

This is what has made the Vatican so rich, which has not only seized the material riches of all nations conquered in the name of her pseudo Christianity, but has also done that which is worse - she has robbed therm of their individual consciences and spiritual element, which is much harder to extirpate, and programmed Catholics with such fanaticism that they even think that the Vatican and her Catholic Churches are poor and in need of believers' money. Various factors, which I will analyze in this study, have collaborated to enrich the Vatican. As a monsignor and priest and historian, I have been documenting myself not only on my living experiences in different dioceses but above all on the reliable sources of Christian historians: and not on Catholic writers, who only represent the very same old falsities over and over though in different ways some] for centuries and have kept us in the blind concerning the most important chapter of all THE VATICAN'S FINANCES. Which shows us that this Catholic Church didn't, doesn't and never will represent the Holy Church of Christ on earth, whose kingdom is spiritual, from heaven.

WITH

THE

The New Catholic Catechism of the Catholic Church is "A sure norm for the teaching of the faith," thus the present pope defines it in the millions of editions of his "best seller," which hath inundated the world, and whose copyrights are owned and controlled exclusively by the Vatican's Editorial Bookstore Editrice, one of the Vatican's biggest moneymakers, seeing it has the exclusivity and royalties on the thousands of book titles corrupting the world. You yourself can do an inventory in any Catholic library, bookstore, or business as this servant did and you will note the multimillionaire sales business that the Vatican has in all the world. Some 75% of religious books in all libraries are written by Jesuits, Dominicans, Pauline, Clerics of the religious orders, and Claretians. The edition which I consult is published in the United Sates, where there is an accord between the Catholic conference, Inc., who are the only official agents of Bookstore Editrice Vaticana and International Publishing House Bantan Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc., for the price of $9 paperback and $30 luxury back. You can add the figures yourself and reach your own conclusions on how the Vatican increases her finances with the Publications business. The actual pope alone, who lords over the Catholic world with an iron fist, has written 20 books, 21 decrees, and 6 encyclicals, which occupy all the libraries of the world, as well as 34 biographies of so political and charismatic a polish pope, who with his trips has sowed all this literature

all over the world, which has lined his pockets with millions and enriches the Polish Church, and his luxurious voyages in private plane. This new Catechism of the Catholic Church is a resume of what the Catholic should believe and practice if he really wants to call himself a member of the Catholic Church. Nowhere does it claim to be a Christian Catechism. This is how we can identify the differences between the Vatican and her National Catholicism, a Pragmatic Political Sect, and the true church of Jesus Christ, an apolitical Christian organism without economic interests and less mercantilist, as the Vatican is with her multinational publications. In the Catechism there appears the most diabolical mixture and teachings which could ever be published, applying the biblical texts according to her interests and interpolating them shrewdly through her Catholic theologians . Several dogmatic principles and canons, of which we have all been victims from an early age, are inculcated in Catholics. The Catholic Catechism has supplanted the mind of God in the INSPIRED HOLY SCRIPTURES For the encyclicals and teachings of the Vatican, the MOTHER OF WITCHCRAFT. Thus has she influenced the consciences of Catholics for centuries, whom she has fanaticized with creeds, masses, sacraments, and unbiblical traditions. A Mercantilist Political Church imposing some invented commandments on her faithful but simple flock so they pay tithes and first fruits, which historically demonstrates why the Vatican's Patrimony and riches have increase beyond our wildest dreams. The famous historian Frederick Schwaler, in his book "origenes de la Riqueza de la Iglesia in Mexico" (The origins of the church's wealth in Mexico) documents the

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN

huge inflow of income from tithes and agricultural first fruits administered by the dioceses of Mexico, which follow the norms and/or rules of the universal Catholic Church. And as other financial studies, Schwaler inserts a biography also at the end so that you can get to know the reality of a church that showeth herself to be poor, when the truth is that she is the richest international enterprise on planet earth, bar none. It's very interesting to note that after the first edition of the New Catechism was published in Italy, it sold out within just a matter of days, and multiple editions have been made afterward. The reason was because Italians were shocked to find out that their church had been involved in defalcating Bank Ambrosiano and caught stealing, with God's Bankers being tried by Civil Courts. As the Spanish upon the ratification of their constitution in the new democracies, which give them liberty of expression and conscience and human rights, which Rome never respected, the Italian people couldn't believe that they were serving a church which was exploiting them shamelessly since the concordats with Mussolini and Franco, Political and economic alliances which helped engross the Vatican's coffers with the income taxes levied against the poor people.

THE NEW CATECHISM: A FOUNTAIN OF INCOME
All of us Catholics have been instructed with Catechisms of very high acquisitive value issued by the Vatican, and not in harmony with gospels. We are to learn and memorize an innumerable amount of definitions of the councils, Encyclicals, synods of every diocese, etc. (Everything but the bible, it seems) I remember that even to help in the Mass I was forced to learn it in Latin before I was selected to be an alter boy or acolyte. I shall remember the Catechism of Ripalda with certain sympathy, because we thought we were learning Christianity, when in reality it's just a most talented market wherein even the salvation of our soul is commercialized: and to say nothing of the money they exact of us. The catholic Christ is only (a) business commodity, valued according to invented miracles. Pius X's Roman Catechism and the multiple Catechisms written since the Roman Catholic Church first deviated from true Christianity has been the main cause of the ignorance and apostasies of Roman Catholic Church and her followers. It has separated the Catholic Church from the genuine Christian Church and her tenets, because it has become a Vader me cum, that is to say, the god of the consciences and faith of Catholics. As a Monsignor and Christian Doctor, I find that the Catechisms are what best represent and/or define the catholic Church's beliefs and organization, and give Christian historians the coordinates to prove her separation and theological, hermeneutical, patristic, and moral apostasies to which she is come in the 20th century. But all she sees is that all these catechisms have generated countless riches for her. After the second Vatican council, the New Catechism promoted by Pope John Paul II himself (also known as the Polish Pope who has cause the most damage to Christianity. The Antichrist, as even many agree) has reunited all this is essentially Catholicism in more than a thousand pages. We can analyze in every chapter and prove that in no way can the

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 53

Catholic Church be the representative of the authentic and true genuine Christianity founded by Jesus Christ [on himself] on earth. Her deviations are of such magnitude that, if she is not renovated and restored to her very foundations very soon, that Babylonian Empire will be punished and cast down by the Immaculate Lamb for her sins, which have reached into heaven (Rev. 17:16-17; 18:224) The New Roman Catechism, a best seller, and the most sold book internationally, is an inexhaustible fountain of income, published by Editorial of the Vatican Money is always needed to raise the already generous salaries of the Roman Curia. This Catechism is, as John Paul II himself says, A sure horn for teaching the (Catholic) faith effectively the Catholic faith, which has very little to do with the true Christian faith, even though she insists on proving the opposite. We are trying to amend so much biblical, theological, patristic, and moral corruption's, a story which still appears in the New Catholic Catechism. The lord will allow me to clear up these deviations, as well as the nefarious canons and anti biblical dogmatism of the second Vatican council, also promoted by this Polish Pope, who during his long reign has undermined and converted the few remaining Christian foundations we had left into a new, more satanic Catholic Church. He is destroying the very foundations of the church, and we contemplate some new, secularized bishops and priests, Marxist Liberation theology theologians, and established Merchants preaching a pseudo Christianity and saying by their works, "Do as I say, not as I do."

ECONOMICAL AND POLITICAL POWER IN THE EDUCATION: "A GOLD MINE" The second biggest area of income coming into the Vatican's coffers, after the sale of sacraments, are universities, secondary (Junior High) schools, High schools, elementary schools, colleges, Parish schools, private schools, and seminaries, which every Catholic diocese in the world possesses, and which are to send their contributions of Peter to the Vatican. This subject, unknown to most Catholics, has been hatched and structured with so much scheming and planning during the centuries, that there exists not a multinational enterprise which can be compared to it. From the Middle Ages, during which convents and their monks and nuns were almost exclusively the centers of learning and functional illiteracy, only the Catholic religion, changed into an amalgamation of esoterically beliefs, which are maintained unto this date, enjoyed the privilege of running schools and teaching her dogmatic biblical and theological aberrations, imposing upon her students the greatest burdens, and forcing even commercial farmers, landowners and fiefs to pay excessive tithes there for. To go over the history of the occidental culture of the middle ages from the 9th to 14th centuries, and its monastic and parochial schools and famous universities, governed by friars commissioned by the Vatican, and existing in every nation of Europe, is to convince oneself of the awesome riches which the Vatican's Catholicism received from her taxes levied upon the education of millions of students, who did not have any other institutions where in to get an education. In spite of wanting to separate church and religion from public education, and constitutionally establishing the secularization of

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 55 education in the new democracies, we are still seeing that it's not being fulfilled and that Catholic schools and all kinds of educational or teaching institutions of religious affinity continue to be opened for the maintenance of thousands of nuns and friars, who have neither graduated nor have a teacher's certificate, and who impose (Catholic) laws and live as capitalists at the cost of education; which by law should be free. Why? Answers the Vatican: "A Mighty Gentleman (or knight) is Don Money." The Contribution of Saint Peter (or assigned quota), which she receives from all of these educational institutions and schools, keep her coffers overflowing. You yourself can investigate in your own city or small town the every kind of schools run by priests, friars, nuns, and the thousands of religious orders, which not only canonize new fancied Saints but also even invent new pedagogically unsound educational systems. From my sacerdotal ordination in 1952 in Spain until my retirement in California in 1997, according to how I was taught, I gave preference to the education of my parishes from a private teacher of Latin and logic in Andalucian small town parishes, to a director of institutes, teachers, professors, head of university institute, not only in the Catholic Church but also of Protestant Institutions in different nations, including now in San Diego, California, I have been able to assemble materials of my living experiences in these centers, for which cause I have been preparing with my doctorate in the education field and textbooks to teach alumni and future teachers the "tricks" of the trade. So much falsity and deception in the name of Christ! The Vatican's banks, which function in all Catholic dioceses, and educational institutions

56

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

administered by her religious orders (millions of them) are to send their monthly quotas and bank statements to the diocesan office of education and culture every year, whose inventory of expenses and income is jealously inspected by the Vatican. And Woe unto him who forgets to turn in the usufruct of his earnings! He will be removed from his charge. The most curious thing about all these Catholic-religious MASTERS, despite their vows of poverty, is that if you look into their bank accounts and properties, you will comprehend the great lie of the poverty which they preach, and above all see the pagan dolche Vitta that they enjoy at the expense of Christianity. From the Pontifical Gregorian Universities, in Rome, direct dependant of the Vatican, to the thousands of Pontifical Universities of the Jesuits, Opus Dei, Claretians, Dominicans, etc, etc. (I have also another Doctorate in Philosophy and Letters by the University Pontificia of Comillas in Madrid) I have been able to grasp , together with my religious teachers, and being a Monsignor and Doctor myself, and having been a personal witness of the Vatican's concordats with fascist dictatorships, how she hath enriched herself, even off of the National Budgets, with the millions of assignments and buildings which the state has donated to the Vatican generously. You yourself can do the adding and calculating. My living experiences in the educational field were a whole life as an economist and financial administrator.

PAPAL NUNCIOS: POWERED ADMINISTRATORS
The Vatican's Apostolic (papal) Nuncios in every nation, whether Catholic or non-Catholic, are the agents responsible for carrying out the Vatican's orders. They represent her political interests and are the last word to be carried out with regards to the finances of every diocese. Every archbishop, bishop, and hierarphy except a few independent cardinals are to give an account every year of their income, businesses and investments, and of the financial state of every diocese and religious order under their authority. Their orders and recommendations in the Episcopal conferences or religious assemblies in regards to their budgets or investments are to be scrupulously stipulated and carried out. And when any bishop slips or does not want to contribute to the contribution of Saint Peter, that is to say, to the Vatican's coffers, or doesn't recognize it as a papal mandate, he 's removed as many a bishop still around, are named Prelatus Nullius,( Self Tittle) that is to say, bishops but without a diocese to administer. It's only natural that the Vatican's coffers should be drained by the millions of dollars invested in her budgets for the Nuncios salaries and their palaces and personal house servants nuns or friars who, with their vows of poverty, and carefully chosen, serve them as maids and servants without social rights. I have studied the life of the Papal Nuncio of Panama firsthand, in whose palace we met and by whom I was well attended for my missionary labor with the Indian Guaymies. That's why I was named a Monsignor and

58

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

proposed to the Holy See. The Nuncios are the ones who make recommendations to the Vatican, and promote the appointments of bishops, cardinals and archbishops. No appointment of the Vatican in any nation can be carried out without the prior approval of the Papal Nuncio. That's why the candidate ought to have contributed generously to the Vatican's treasury and coffers, and to her political interests and consignments. "Papal" Nuncios (there is nothing apostolic about them: very few, that is, only four I know of, of the thousands existing, have been canonized) are but crooked Merchants carrying out the Mother of Abominations' orders, most of them, anyway. My living experiences with them in Spain, Panama, New York, Puerto Rico, and now in Mexico with its New Nuncio, compatriot Just Mullor, have shown me that they are the same sinister personages who pass themselves off as ambassadors of peace and Christianity, when they are all the contrary. They brag about representing a billion Catholics, when their statistics are all phony; seeing that most Catholics are only Christians in name and by baby sprinkling, and paying their simonies quotas for the traditional religious services they receive. The Papal Nuncios are all commissioned to transform democracies into [Catholic] dictatorships, whereof I was a personal witness in Seville, Spain, with the arrival of the New Nuncio, and where I exercised my charge as an economist and parson in the biggest parish of San Julian. What I witnessed there (the Vatican toppling of the democratic republic, and the Nazi-fascist columns and armaments, bought and paid for by the Vatican money, entering to subdue the people) is the very same

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 59 situation now taking place in Mexico. And as we see, the Papal Nuncios already wants to take over the military, organizing the military chaplains and an extensive vicariate of bishops. He already wants to abolish Art. 130 of the Mexican constitution, of the separation of church and state and the prohibition of religious teaching in public schools. We see in the declarations this Nuncio is making to the News Media that he is already prepared, and with millions of dollars, to carry out his functions as a seasoned politician of Rome. And every day his objectives are being realized, accompanied by hundreds and thousands of diocesan clergymen who suck up to the Episcopate, friars and nuns capable of assassinating, and fanatics agitating the people to civil disobedience and repudiation of the democratically elected authority. Wake up Mexico! Expel Just Mullor! He's your enemy! Far too many proofs of his political interventions in the nation's politics exist. There are many proofs that this experienced Spanish Politician and witness in Ukraine of this Pope's Slavic politics and interventions in international organisms, aleady has most of the economic power and cultural heritage of the nation cornered: for he is from Opus Dei, the owners of the money.

SECRETARIES OF STATE AND THEIR POWERED OFFICES
The administrative and diplomatic politics of the Vatican's government has three important departments. The first is the congregation for Ecclesiastical Affairs, that is to say, for the Catholic Churches of the world and the consignments to be carried out. Remember, dear reader, that the Vatican administers more than 500 seminaries and more than 2000 universities, and thousands of parochial schools whereby her political instructions are executed to the letter. If you studied the ecclesiastical formation of thousands of priests, religious brainwashed and fanaticized with a false scholastic philosophy which has made us prove the false for the true a pseudo Christianity which is by no means biblical Christianity, but Catholicism, you would better understand the formidable power of the Vatican. In the Vatican state's territory itself, in Rome, there are 400 seminaries of groups of Africans, Abissinian (Ethiopians: Cushy), Armenians, Maronites, and Russians; and since the 4th century numerous colleges, Academic Institutions, Papal Universities and colleges have been established in Rome, graduating the thousands of priests who would take the positions of authority and responsibility in the dioceses spread throughout the whole world. I have several statistics of these centers, their properties, riches, etc, which demonstrate her temporal and Satanic powers, called spiritual. Every one of these congregations of religious orders, numbering more than two thousand with the most varied habits and colors, has its own MOTHER CHURCH in Rome, and they are slowly but surely

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
61

taking over the city of Rome. For they receive millions of dollars from all the missions and Catholic Churches of the world. Just in the United States alone she maintains various seminaries and Catholic colleges which come to the USA as very stereotyped, proud capitalists, imposing an Anglo-Saxon religious Pragmatism which is no longer a Christian Church in the biblical sense at all, but an Irish National Catholicism. I have not the space, neither is it possible, to fully summarize almost two thousand years of Vatican power. I recommend, from among the biography that I insert, in George Selde's book "The Vatican Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow," where he statistically proves the Vatican's temporal and spiritual powers, her Concordats and Alliances with both rightist and leftist governments, with reliable historical documents, and from which I have document myself considerably. It's very possible that if Catholics ignore many of the affirmations which I am making, and remember that I have had the privilege of consulting them scientifically, they may rebuke me as an heretic and renegade who isn't even a priest. Thus National Catholicism defames and slanders me to the Mexican press, to discredit my affirmations and accusations against National Catholicism. I am canonically within my ecclesiastical license from the diocese of the Archbishop Rick of Seville, Spain. I am not excommunicated (yet), even though they arc trying to silence me and persecute me mercilessly and relentlessly. There are also the Departments of Religious Affairs, of Ceremonies, of Sacred Rites, of Discipline and Sacraments, the congregation of

62

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

seminaries, universities and studies, the Congregations of Eastern Churches, the sad Sacred Congregation for Propagating the faith and the disastrous Congregation of the Holy Office (or of the INQUISITION), etc. I recommend my investigative work concerning inquisition magazine Cultural Concept N.2. This INQUISITION still functions through the following Vatican Tribunals, and which exist in all the thousands of dioceses scattered throughout all the Catholic world: with their excommunications, censorships, and persecutions against Christians, priests, and all or any groups, associations, or authors which disobey or oppose her tyrannical laws. Her secret archives and history today fill us with indignation and prove that the Vatican's power has been possible thanks to her Satanic and Hitler laws. The Sacred Roman Rote (to clear up or resolve sacramental problems), the Apostolic Signature or Supreme court of the Catholic Church (a tribunal that has functioned since the 15th century, and whose mercantilist actions I can and do denounce as a personal witness in Seville, Spain), and last, the Sacred Penitentiary. Why continue proving the Vatican's powers? If your Catholic organization demonstrates that it is but an Unchristian Political State of National Catholicism? I am a Doctor in both Christian and Catholic history: a documented Monsignor.

MONEY: THE AUTHENTIC MOTIVE FOR THE ABBAT OF GUADALUPE'S RESIGNATION The catholic Church in Mexico, following the consignments of the Vatican, has forced the Abbot of the Basilica of Guadalupe to resign for committing the mortal sin of telling the truth, that the whole history of the apparitions to the Indian Juan Diego is nothing more than another myth, as the miraculous image, the Tilma. Flowers, etc. with can not be seriously taken as beig true. These legitimate declarations and accusations by an authority who has served the Basilica for over 30 years should no doubt be taken very seriously, and his opinions respected in the century of freedom of expression and the new democracies, even more so since these declarations concern the religious conscience of Catholic believers in regards to liberty of conscience, expression and worship. But unfortunately the Vatican only cares about power and money, fall or perish who may. Of course she gives the news media her well tailored truths. We saw from the first minute that the Vatican herself denied, refused and contradicted his affirmations and treated the elder Abbot as a decrepit phony and denied him even the right that every citizen has to opine, judge and say when he considers to be the truth, according to his individual conscience. All the events that took place with the historical fact of the Guadalupan declarations, and how Vatican State reacted who was losing one of the richest fountains of income in Mexico she and the archiepiscopal prelacy and the majority of other compromised bishops had reminded me of Spain's dictatorship and church, which was allied to the Vatican. When Spaniards

64

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

realized that the myth of Spain's patron Saint, the Virgin of Pillar, could no longer be sustained in the 20th century for much longer, seeing that it was but a fable and myth, an event which never existed, and that in the new democracies of freedom to investigate such lies and historical falsities had to be destroyed, the Vatican went mad. Reading and listening to the case of the abbot of the Basilica with interest. I have to come to the conclusion, as a Monsignor and Christian writer and Doctor, that the same coordinates which were given in Spain are being realized in Mexico today, with Catholicism and the Vatican, besides the dictatorial government and Catholic prelates, directing the scene. As a matter of fact, I find Mexico even more compromised than Spain itself was, obeying the consignments of Vatican State to the letter. Luckily now in Spain's new democracy, points are being established which separate Catholicism's bloody history and political interests from the true history of Christianity, something very different indeed. All the other democracies in Latin America are trying to do the same, to the Vatican's Chagrin. Mexico needs to follow suit and not be left behind, for we already see the Vatican and her delegates using their money to mobilize Mexican guerrillas. In Spain they were able to destroy the democratic republic and send all of us who opposed her dictatorship into exile. Forget not that if the myths and other Catholic lies, which have kept the people asleep, are not stopped soon, the same thing that came to pass in Spain shall also happen in

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
65

Mexico: millions of brothers shall die, and thousands of her opponents shall be sent into exile. Offer not your money to the Vatican anymore. For why should you pay for your own enslavement and destruction? You are better off giving it to the poor and needy. The events of the Abbot are being repeated in every nation where the Vatican controlled ecclesiastical hierarchies are permitted to exercise their political and economical powers. Don't forget, Mexico, that the Vatican's Mexican primates are only interested in the takeover of the Basilica's offerings, and they are achieving it, believe me. It's basically the same story in Mexico, whose shrine to the Virgin of Guadeloupe was brought by the Franciscans themselves with great care, who still exist in Spain. Mexico should not ignore Vatican and her Catholic Churches' true interests in regards to the riches of the Guadeloupe shrine: riches which the Abbot himself has used to live the dolche vitta, and which the Vatican could not lose. The mighty multibillionaire will run rampant as long as the Mexico and the other countries let her. And if they don't rein her in, she will eventually end up possessing all the riches of all the world.

THE DIRTY MANAGEMENT OF THE BILLION DOLLARS: JOHN PAUL II AND MARCINKUS
The secrecy maintained by the Catholic Church in all her dioceses, and the consequent ignorance of faithful Catholics about the Vatican's finances, bank investments, thefts, and misuse of offerings, which one thinks, upon offering them to God, will be well administered and distributed among the millions of hungry, naked, sick, poor, and needy masses of the world, is the main reason why offerings go to the enrichment of her hierarchies, to control governments and economies, take over education, possess millions of shares in Markets and Stock Exchanges the world over, and the purchase and sale of multination enterprises, which today compete with, excel, and make up the richest nations on earth, whether capitalist or otherwise. In the summer of 1982, the Vatican and her administrators John Paul II and Paul Marzinkus, archbishop and confidential banker, and monsignar Martinez, assessor of the secretary of state, embezzle and bankrupt Bank Ambrosia of Milan, the private bank with the biggest money backing in Italy, and Vatican property. As Richard Hammer very well points out in his book "The Vatican Connection, The Astonishing Account of a Billion Dollar Counterfeit Stock Deal Between The Mafia and the Vatican," a book I recommend you read, so you can understand and hopefully come to the same conclusions as this Monsignor that the Church Christ founded cannot be the one the Vatican claims to represent in the world.

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
67

which always hides her true terrestrial interests and intentions. On page 323 the author relates the illegal transactions which the Vatican's financial wizards committed with Monsignor Mario Fornasari and Mario Foligni; how police discover $95,000,000 went to the Vatican's Sacred Congregation or Institute for Religious Works; the way Monsignor Martinez, who was responsible, denies everything and tries to ignore the proven deeds, etc. And as John Paul II and Marzinkus, with all malice aforethought, they too deny the deeds which the courts and justices condemn. Personages like Mario Folligni revolved around 1 million dollars in profits from the diocese of Rome. And among other things, Hammer relates how the Vatican bank and the inter commerce group Nouva Since be show up in illegal transactions. The Vatican's utter refusal to acknowledge her crimes, and her determination to keep her illegal actions secret, always justifying the unjustifiable with scholastic and false arguments, by claiming she is, "not going into detail because that would be a violation of banking secrecy laws" (pg. 239), is a perfect example of her impenitent heart. The Company Linch was expelled for soliciting its violated rights, along with others, with the papal argument and Marzinkus' recommendations and Martinez' support, saying, "that he (had) no knowledge whether anyone in the Vatican know anything about the situation." And then adds with yet more degeneracy and impudence: "But in any case it was not the intention of the Vatican to collaborate

68

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

with United States officials in their investigation at this point" (pg. 292), etc. IN OTHER WORDS, WE WILL KEEP ON STEALING, EMBEZZLING AND VIOLATING THE RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE, and we won't go to jail, even though it's the CIA or FBI who want us to cooperate and tell the truth: for they already have the evidence of the Vatican's connections to the New York Mafia. Marzinkus has been caught, and there is ample federal police documentation of it, in illegal projects with Michele Sindona. The depositing of 950 million dollars in Swiss bank accounts and in Bank of Rome, and how three Monsignors were implicated, is all well known (pg. 292). Also known are the charges of the companies implicated and clients affected by the Vatican's bankruptcy of Bank Ambrosiano. The Zagas Marcinkus, the Vatican's banker, had the following answer for them: "[He] said he would try to answer those charges to the best of his ability, but he would not go into any details about it (pg. 293). Conclusion: Is it possible for us to still believe that the Vatican is the representative of the true Christian Church?. I know not! Why don't they admit their errors and turn to Christ Jesus Our Lord in repentance?

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 69 INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATED WITH THE CHURCH I will refer the reader to consult pages 40-293 of investigator Richard Hammers book "The Vatican Connection," which will show you how New York, Los Angeles, Chicago are the centers of the dirty businesses and contacts of the Mafia, together with the banks in the Bahamas, the paradise of money laundering, where banker Marzinkus carries out his illegal transactions, for which cause he has been implicated in the purchase of a Billion dollars in counterfeited stocks. The Vatican's capital is increased by buying and selling her shares in the following companies. 1. New York banks. 2. Coca cola Bottling co., Los Angeles. 3. Occidental Petroleum, Co. 4. Norton Simon inc. 5. Bear Stern co. 6. Goose and company. 7. Nardatand company. 8. Switzerland Bank. 9. Multinational Investment. 10. McDonald Construction de Los Angeles. 12. Credit Suise. 13. Bank Exterior, etc. I wouldn't have enough space to continue enumerating how banks and business firms, wherein the Vatican's BILLIONS are invested in the purchase of shares and certificates at exorbitant interest rates, enrich the Vatican's coffers, the smallest nation territorially, but the richest and most powerful of the world. Pope John Paul II has been taken by surprise by private investigators of the secret service as the author of crime of lese-majesty, with hairs and fingerprints, that he has been committing since the beginning of his pontificate. But notwithstanding all this, he still appear in the News Media with the appellative of the Papa "crossing the Threshold of hope," etc, a testimony of the Vatican's influence on

70

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

our communications media. I have hundreds of biographies of this pope on my redaction table wherein his silhouettes as a racist slave appear, artistically studied photographs by his designers and photographers, who transform him into something he isn't: into an image that has made the whole world believe, including the UN and UNESCO, that he is both the center of the gospel and has the solution to the crisis through which we are going. What sarcasm! Christian believers , that is to say, those of us who believe in Christ and his infallible teachings in the Bible, have a sure hope they who no longer believe in the pope, whose fruits and those of his Catholic Church demonstrate how far they have deviated from the way of Salvation. He has changed the church into that which we are now analyzing in this biography we have in our hands: A corrupt, sinful church that falsifies Christianity. We are now permitted to speak and expose the truth, without fear and openly, in the new democracies. And that I do! I don't have enough space to continue mentioning all the companies, banks and businesses working the Vatican's billions, I'll insert the following books, which, if you really want to know the truth about the Vatican's financial corruption and of her present Pope, you will read and re-read: Pope John Paul II, by George Blaznski; for the Man from Krakow, All Roads Led to Rome; Crossing the Threshold of Hope, by His Holiness John Paul II; Vatican Imperialism in the Twentieth Century, and many other biographies which you should read.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH'S EDITORIAL BUSINESS
As a monsignor and priest, I have worked in the publications offices in the dioceses and archdioceses of Seville, Spain, Panama, Puerto Rico, and now in San Diego, California. I am a living witness of the so perfected organized mercantilism that exist therein, and of how the Vatican has thereby taken over the majority of journalism, literature, textbooks, bible printing, magazines and all kinds of parochial publications, bulletins, seminaries, missionary programs, etc. Thus she engrosses her coffers even more with the money collected thereby. During the centuries the Catholic Church and the Vatican have registered all kinds of publications, and have censured and prohibited (under penalty of sin or excommunication) all those publications which have desired to open the eyes and conscience of poor Catholics, criticizing and contending with the corruption and abuses of world Catholicism. To prove my affirmations with statistical facts, and challenging with my proofs whomsoever may want to prove differently, I have used scientific arguments, and not Romanist scholastic speculations, which the false, private interpreting Catholic Church presents, and which claims that all her publications are scriptural, but are but a JUICY BUSINESS: and the most dishonest commercial fraud which is practiced in the same of the poor Christian. No Catholic book can be printed unless it has the nihil obstat et imprimatur. In every diocese in every nation of the world, there is a press and communications office or commission charged with supervising all kinds of publications and

72

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

giving them the nihil obstat, that is to say, it damages nothing. All these ecclesiastical censors, together with their bishops, participate in this business; and all of them are owners of libraries, authors of books, shareholders of the most important News Media of a nation. A great part of her riches and treasury accounts in the banks proceed from so marvelous a business as this. The Vatican's economic might in the whole world comes by the money that her Editorial and Bookstore Editrice Vaticana [a publishing business] contributes; and which approves every Catholic publication in the entire world; and which is also in charge of exacting royalties of every Catholic publication that comes out That's why the Vatican, using the very same language as the Roman Empire, which she claims to represent, utilizes the seal "Bookstore Editrice Vatican Omnia sibi vindicat yura. Sine ejusdem licencia scripto data nimini liceat imprimere hunc Catechismum aut in aliam linguam vertere," (Latin words) which being translated is, "The right to publish and/or translate any book is forbidden without first paying the Vatican." Imagine ye, just in Spain alone seventy million exemplars have been printed of the New Catechism of the Catholic Church. Three editions of luxury paper $50, couched paper $25, and, which I have myself, regular magazine paper $12. Do you want to do the adding? Bibles are just another business to Rome, both of the Catholic Bible Society and her associates in the protestant Bible Society, published by the United States Catholic conference; The New American Bible with Revised New Testament and Revised Psalms, that is to say, with the apocryphal books and a Catholic exegesis, and the chapters interpreted according to Catholic interests. This Bible-if you can call it a Bible cost me $11, and it can be

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
73

compared to the Protestant Bible, "The Holy Bible New International version," seeing both are based on the same corrupted texts of "Vatican's" the two Greek texts chosen by all translators since the 19th century, and costs $5.99. Millions of exemplars are made of these bibles. Some editions, as that of Luxury de Torres Amat, are sold for $35, and why continue? Does this not prove how even our sacred books are commercialized? As a Professor and teacher in both papal and secular universities, and as an author of textbooks on philosophy, humanities, Special Educational, anthropology, and biblical works, I have had to struggle with her publications, editorials, etc. My conclusion of the whole matter, after doing a thorough analysis of the textbooks which are recommended (ie imposed) to students every year, and which, if they won't buy, they won't be allowed into the classroom, is that they are just a big, juicy business. The statistics and annotations I've gathered, in just the University de la Ibero in Mexico, are truly staggering, and very few people have stopped to think about how so many Jesuit, Franciscan and Dominican colleges and 400 religious orders of nuns and friars could live the dolche vita off of the PUBLICATIONS BUSINESS. In closing, did you know that the Publishing House Paulinas A very profitable business indeed! You may now understand the Vatican's preponderance and arrogance.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH'S CURIA AND THEIR ADMINISTRATORS
I have been asked, as an non excommunicated Monsignor and Doctor who has served the Catholic Church for fifty (50) years, exercising different pastoral and administrative charges, and teaching in divers countries' universities and colleges: what would my qualifications or definitions be of the Catholic Curia and my living experiences with them? After so many years within that system, writing my memoirs now as a retired man in California, I would have to answer my Catholic and protestant friends, who are still ignorant of the reality of the Catholic Church's gross corruption, that the majority of them have been disappointed and defrauded, as this servant was. People who have been educated in the Catholic Church only know what they read about her in her Catechisms or journalistic or television programs. All of a literature founded on scholasticism's or the philosophy used by Catholicism, and which hath made to think, opine, and come to the conclusions which I essay to set forth before my friends, the Christian believers, who have their doubts concerning the Roman Catholic Church, because her fruits and the conduct of her administrators answer not to the holy teachings of Christ our Lord: that is, her enrichment, bad examples, pagan ceremonies and arrogance, etc, cannot represent genuine and authentic Christianity. Here in why. 1. The Vatican is not the center or depository of Christianity. For since the 4th century, when she was created, she has deviated some 75% from biblical Christianity and is become a Political State and fascist Dictatorship of National Catholicism-a Millennial Sect

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 75 whose Political, educational, religious and agnostic tentacles, (and) her fretting for material interests, and not spiritual, and her mercantilist enrichment discredit from being the representative of Christianity, and much more from being the center of Christendom. 2. The administrators of the Roman curies, as any other businessmen, have had us so deceived, in the name of Christ Jesus, with a hypocrisy and holy charisma, and with a face of honesty and other false appearances, that it is difficult to know how to distinguish between the true internal acts thereof and those of the scholasticism that surrounds all their works and words. It has taken his servant many years to discover this, and to come to the conclusions to which I have come. 3. Then I would define and describe or rate the Catholic curies and their administrators, for using the philosophical system of Catholic scholasticism in their lives and offices. You could then decide for yourself and tell me what that system is. And this servant has had to get a doctorate from scientific teachers, who were not scholastic or irrational, to understand the entrapment where with I was educated, and from which it is so very difficult to get away, seeing they use Christianity to conceal their falsehoods and lies, 4. The scholastic system is a philosophy or doctrine of cynics, a group of Socrates disciples which have separated themselves from the truth, whose founder was Antistenes and Diogenes, who also separated themselves from true wisdom (my book Essays on the Philosophical foundations of Education). This system is defined by the Royal Academy as a

76

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

doctrine of cynicism some shamelessness in lying or in defending the practice of reprehensible actions or doctrines. I am a witness thereof during the 50 years I served this false Catholic institution. 5. You yourself can witness, as this servant, in the Catholic curia, the thousands of faithful Catholics who have to leave their offices upset and offended by so many humiliations and disrespectful conduct which are directed at them. When you solicit your rights and due attention, you get your most sensitive feelings hurt by the hardness or rudeness of these ill-mannered administrators, who, in the name of God, allow themselves the luxury of offending people and believe themselves to be deified superiors. 6. As a Christian who has a doctorate in education, I will not define or describe these Catholic curies with epithets which answer not to (the) sufferings of which I am a personal witness, and whereof I have received so abundantly from so big headed and unrighteous administrators, the majority of whom lack an education, having but a few scholastic Papal academic grades which are not scientific, nor are they validated in State Universities. "They are diplomatic oxen," affirms Octave Paz. I should forgive, but nevertheless I have chosen to define the Catholic curies with the following epithets: Places of inhuman affectations and rudeness, of impudence, shameless obscenity, indecency. A place of racist, cunning devils, of rascals naughty scamps, ambitious merchants, astute etc.

RELIGIOUS ORDERS: THE VATICAN ROMAN LEGIONS Vatican historian Avro Manhattan, in chapter V of his excellently documented book "The Vatican in World Politics," tells us very well that, "In addition to the vast machinery of religious administration in Christian and non Christian countries, there is another great machinery which although not so well known, is nevertheless of the greatest importance in furthering the spiritual and political powers of the Catholic Church." That is to say, the fifth columns with which the Vatican has counted since the 4th century and the epoch of monastic orders, communities which ran from the world and submitted themselves to living together either under papal laws and those of their founders.

You yourself can review Holidays of the Catholic almanac, which will enable you to start enumerating the houses, convents, and monasteries of both men and women which were formed over the centuries fifth columns on which the papacy depends to sow its scholastic Catholicism. It's very possible that you yourself have been the Victim of being brainwashed with a nun's or priest's education, or maybe your sons, friends, and have been able to witness, wherever you live, how they have increasingly taken over Catholic education with such professionalism and consecration, even fanatical devotion, toward guidelines, curriculums, criteria, rules, norms, and consignments of the Vatican. One of the hardest working departments of the Holy See is called Congregation for Religious Affairs, and the

78

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

Congregation for Seminaries, universities and (of) studies. . . Their lists of congregations and founders occupy thousands of pages, if we count the many names which never existed, and less are they founders of Christian values. Millions of monks, nuns, semi religious , brothers, sisters of cloister without papal cloister of perpetual vows, simple vows. You yourself can count the all kinds of privileges which they receive from the Vatican and differentiate the one from the other. It's very curious to go for a drive through Roman Street sand run into seminaries and friars with the most enjoyable colorful clothes, from the red dresses of the Germany Clergy, to the outfits and uniforms of the Vatican's Swiss guards, and of the religious orders of the Middle Ages and of the Renaissance. You will be able to annotate what is found in the Roman Catholic world, which, following the customs and habits of the Roman Empire, including talking in Latin, has been stagnated by the Vatican powers that be. How many millions of priests, curates, clergymen, clerics, nuns, monks and seminarians are there populating the whole, world? I am pleased to tell you about them through my articles so you can begin to understand it. You can be sure that the life of Catholic priests and their monk-like existence, and that of their hierarchies, who run into the millions today, are spent living off of the miseries of poor, trusting Catholics, in the name of Christ, having their reward now, in the kingdom of this world and age. And there exists not a religious order on earth that doesn't have its very organized finances, or that contributes not the contributions of Saint Peter to its Mistress and Mother The Vatican. My living experiences as a chaplain of friars and nuns is why I have come to these conclusion on the religious orders,

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
79

which I've served and walked with, and which can be classified into three groups: A) nuns of the order of Saint Clare, which Saint Francis of Assisi founded, of Papal cloister, their faces covered behind bars from a very early age until they die. I recall in Bornes, a small town of Cadiz, in Spain, where I was a chaplain, the kind of life which these poor souls lived, and their medieval customs, etc, who are imprisoned by the Mother of. . . Abominations. B) Saint Vicente of Paul nuns, in hospitals and municipal centers or shelters. Sick nuns who are Frenchified and of capricious discipline. C) Mercenary nuns who were founded to rescue Christian captives in Africa, and now converted into preponderant educators, together with their brothers, the Mercenary priests. I also contemplated the Carmelite sisters of the cross, of the Divine Pastor, of the sacred Heart, slaves, servants of Mary, of the Sacred. Hearts, etc. And of men, and of Whom I was chaplain, Salesians (members of the society of saint. Francis of sales), of the Christian Doctrine , Brothers of Saint John of God, Etc. Why continue?. There are thousands of them, both female and male, who are the Vatican's fifth columns, pushing her divers social, cultural, educational and economic programs, of which we are all victims.

PAPAL INVESTITURES AND THE VATICAN TAXES
The history of investitures during the Middle Ages, and (of) the wars come up to obtain their privileges, besides the purchases and sale of dioceses and bishop, canonries, royal chaplainries, coronations of princes and kings, of knights of the nobility, dukes, marquises, and all of a spectrum of nobles and blue bloods, ecclesiastical aristocrats, cardinals, bishops, domestic prelates, papal nuncios, abbots, prelates nulls, papal delegates, etc, can all be found mixed up with Vatican City. I have not space to continue enumerating the thousands of personages who, to receive investitures, paid enormous sums of money to the Vatican's coffers, and who until this very day occupy the dioceses and monasteries which claim to represent Christianity; when the truth is that every one of them has used his position to enrich himself using the name of the poor Christ. Wars of investitures in Europe's Holy Roman Empire occupy numerous chapters of bloody battles where millions of poor Catholics, directed by National Catholicism and its chief, the pope, have been martyred and used in sad crusades unto an death. At the cry of Deovo lo Volt, "God wants it," millions of Catholic natives have died in fratricidal wars and struggles of national brothers deceived by the Catholic Church's ambitious plans or consignments in all nations, many times through her associations of Catholic Action, "Cristeros" (supporters of rebellion against secular laws introduced after the revolution), Apostles of the word,

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 81 Apostles of Christ, and thousands of legions of monasteries of friars and nuns, who are sworn to defend the Vatican's interests and consignments. Even unto this day the Vatican's coffers are reestablished and maintained, when they get low, through these investitures. To be able to really understand my historical documentation concerning all I am saying about investitures, I should recommend one of my books on the Humanities, and which I've titled Lecturas Sobre las Humanidades (Lectures on the Humanities) vol. II, pg. 45, chapter 2, and which I titled "History of Christianity." I do a summary of this sad history of the struggles for investitures from the Middle Ages unto this present century. The most notable moments in both the western and Eastern Empires, the principal factors which Roman Emperors of the Holy Roman Empire used to convert true Christianity into state Catholicism, that is to say, into a church that deviated from her primordial objectives and teachings of Jesus Christ, obeying the king and Pontifex Maximus of Rome or of Byzantium. On page 74 and following, I say: "The financial supervision of the Vatican's economic system was strictly regulated. This sacred Empire was known as the " Paradise of Monopoly," privileges and paternalism. The state and the Catholic Church exercise a total income declarations and monopoly of all activities. Both the wages of workers and the prices of products were fixed by governmental decree. A system of guilds or labor unions, established in the latter days of the Roman Empire, was maintained,

82

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

where a citizen couldn't even choose his own occupation. The manufacturer couldn't elect the quantity nor (the) quality of the raw materials which he desired to acquire, and all were to render accounts and pay tithes off of their production and earnings, etc. To get an idea of the Vatican's and wealth, I will facilitate a biography at the end whereby you can document yourself and reach your own conclusions which the Vatican and her Catholic zealously conceal. But we can now know the truth, and without fear of excommunication or the stake. The history of the Church's investitures, which are maintained unto this day, is one of the major sources that the Vatican has or uses to increase her finances and get the temporal power she possesses in this day and age. I have not the space to continue enumerating the thousand year old mercantilism of the Vatican, whereby she receives her millionaire revenues from investiture taxes.

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN As thousands of other Spaniards, I am a monsignor
and priest who was exiled for opposing Franco's dictatorship and criticizing Vatican state and her ally the Catholic Church, who were responsible for defeating the Spanish Democratic Republic and imposing, by force, a fascist regimen, a forty year dictatorship, thanks to the millions of pesetas which Vatican state puts in the hands of rebellious militants of bishops and Catholic seminaries. I was a parson in the arch diocese of Seville, the biggest of Spain. It was the stomping grounds of famous cardinals, and where the see was ruled by the holy doctor cardinal D. Pedro Segura y Saenz, also a victim of Vatican City and her dictator Franco. I was a witness of how Vatican state constantly mobilized and sent new nuncios and papal delegates, who carried out her consignments to finish off the constitutional government. And all this only for separating church (Catholic) from state; and putting her arrogant clergymen in their place, whom Rome uses for her political and economic interests, in the name of Christianity, she has confused us ingenuous priests and believers. They won the war in Spain, expelled or banished the Spanish Republic from power, intellectuals, artists, and Christians (all those who resisted this Catholic-fascist dictatorship), and caused the death of a million Spaniards in a fratricidal war: at the cry of the crusaders' "Hail Christ the king." Execute the communists! I am no retired (and) writing my memoirs, but only after first having had the opportunity of visiting the Vatican several times, and of having had access to the university libraries in Columbia, New York, California, etc; and to the

84

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

National Libraries of various countries. And today, without ecclesiastical censorship, that is, the nihil obstat et imprimatur to worry about, free and in a democratic society with freedom of expression, and not fearing excommunication [or the stake], I have been able to annotate, for true history, those doctrines and historical facts which Vatican state and her representatives have falsified, and which they made us believe as truth; when the reality is that any honest man, especially a Christian having the spirit of Christ, must come to the conclusion that Vatican state, using her scholastic and irrational philosophies, has sown but lies instead of truth in Catholic consciences, even though she presents herself as the exclusive center of Christendom. The truth remains (and I can prove it scientifically with facts) that the Catholic Church that the Vatican represents doesn't even have ten percent (10%) Christian values, and that her interests are by no mean spiritual, mind you, but of political and material power and wealth. Vatican state has been losing many battles through or with the New Democracies springing up and the separating of Churchstate relations. The mission of the [true] church is to preach the gospel (Matt. 28:18-20), but this is what we see least of in Mexico. We see all the contrary. Arrogant Bishops and dominating nuncios, who every day contaminate the pulpits more and more, and whose Vatican consignments are daily being realized, is what we see. Rome doesn't want to lose the war in Mexico, And there from proceed the unjustified attacks and defamation that the clergy reserves for and vents toward evangelical Christian groups. It's a truth that the Catholic Church is nothing but a thousand-year-old millennial sect whom we must confront now once and for all and forever. In Spain Vatican State ordered the

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
85

burning of Protestant temples and churches, the prohibition of the bible [which she does every single chance she gets], and the exile or assassination of Christian ministers who criticized the fascist dictatorship and clergy, which was compromise to German National Catholicism. The arrival of guerrilla forces in these moments in different states, yea, the arrival of the generals of the Jesuits, Opus Dei, Teresians and thousands of friars and nuns of Rome, including Monsignors educated in papal institutions, and secret delegates of the Vatican, who are occupying universities and positions of directorships in big businesses, etc, reminds me of the same situation in Spain - of how they started taking over everything. . . until they won the war. The very same coordinates given in Spain then are being given in Mexico now. And if the Mexican Government opens not its eyes very soon, we will have a cicil war [again] and Mexicans will continue dying in defense of, or opposition to, Vatican state, which is not a Christian Church. In the states of Chiapas, Guerrero, Yucatan, as in Colombia, Nicaragua and in all Latin American Catholic dictatorships, liberation theology guerrillas are being established, who are majestically directed by the Vatican's National Catholicism and its battlehardened clerical legions of bishops, Jesuits and priests, who are committed to either conquering or dying with the cross and assault rifle.

THE MEXICAN CLERGY'S POLITICAL POWER AND RICHES
I am a Monsignor and Doctor who writes about Christianity and its pseudo representative, Catholicism. During the years I have endeavored to get acquainted, through my doctorates and biblical studies (and not fearing excommunication or ecclesiastical censorship) in the United States, with the true history of Christianity. Forty years in pursuit of the true church founded by Jesus Christ on earth and her teachings, characteristics, etc, if so be that this church really existed on earth. For even though I was educated, or rather brainwashed, thoroughly in Catholic institutions, nevertheless I saw that Protestant and evangelical churches, though closer to God and true Christianity, and having a bigger percentage of saved Christians, were also in need of restoration. Through my living experiences within Catholicism, occupying the most diverse pastoral duties, and knowing the Catholic Church system in different nations, I have been able to come several conclusions concerning which, with all due respect to their beliefs, I cannot but write in conscience what I believe, as a doctor and Christian missionary and Ex priest, to be true Christianity and its rival, Catholicism. Two totally different CONCEPTS. Vatican State's power and riches are incalculable. This whore and MOTHER of ABOMINATIONS has very well known how to exploit Christianity in the occidental culture, to make people see her as the sole representative of Christianity. But the history of the centuries testifies how she has carried on her power politics and acquired her riches, and how she has taken

over and controlled the consciences and minds of whole nations through INQUISITIONS, CENSORSHIP, EXCOMMUNICATIONS CRUSADES, SLANDERS, SCHOLASTIC PHILOSOPHIES, ANTI-BIBLICAL THEOLOGIES, ESOTERIC MORALS, AGNOSTICISM, LYING WONDERS, etc; and how all those which resisted are damned to Hell fires already for disobedience. We are now coming to the thresholds of the Third Millennium when democracies permit us to study, investigate, and speak the truth of history, and when we are granted the human rights of freedom of speech, worship, and beliefs, free from fear of excommunications or inquisitions, which Catholicism still wants to maintain, we can now come to legitimate conclusions and reliable arguments and defy this power Dictatorial State of the Vatican on public forum, whose ambitions are not nor ever really have been Christian or spiritual, but very much on the contrary, political and economic ambitions. I can prove-and it's clearly documented-her financial corruption in Mexico. Vatican State is the biggest enemy of democracy in existence, bar none. The power of Vatican State survives still today. Very arrogant and powerful are her bishops, nuncios, Monsignors, and clerics, who are educated in Rome's Institutions, more than 300 universities, colleges, convents, seminaries, patroness, councils, boards, etc. all of which make the Vatican's power and influence in Mexico of such (a) magnitude, that if Mexico's leaders don't check her very soon, as they do in democracies, Mexico will become another bastion or stronghold of Vatican city's Multinational Empire. Wake up Mexico to the snares of Vatican State, which is the most powerful force within

88

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

Mexico: an Empire who, using the name of Christianity, is subjugating and undermining the true democracy which we need so badly in these moments. She is undermining and asphyxiating all manifestations and principles of a democracy. As far as Catholic dictatorships are concerned, I was a live witness in Spain, Puerto Rico, and California now, of how Vatican State imports a Political-religion nationalism through the name of Christianity. In these very moments, Basque, Irish, and Polish Catholics are growing in Mexico, and by means of their bishops, allied to and controlled by the Vatican, are carrying out an armed crusade wherein Mexicans die every day: and everything governed strictly from the Vatican by her billions of dollars. Forget not this reality, my brothers: Christ cannot be represented by a terrestrial, bloody state, a millennial dictatorship and antichrist sect such as this. "By their fruits," and not by their words, "You shall know them." We are witnesses of her scholastic falsities, her ambitions to get richer, her deviations, her deceiving, her ABOMINATIONS and in the name of our bless savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. Is it not now high time we unmask the Antichrist and Culprit of Christian ignorance? .

STOP SENDING MONEY TO THE VATICAN: THE SOLUTION TO THE CRISIS IN CHIAPAS
The sad events taking place in Chiapas and in other Mexican regions are the same as the events which took place in Spain and Panama, whereto I was called to live as a missionary and priest. The arrival of the Vatican's New Nuncio, and the appointments of the primates and papal political delegates of the religious orders, and of lay political delegates with whom National Catholicism abundantly counts, and landowners, converted the Spanish and [later] Panamanian governments into dictatorships which stripped the poor natives of their lands, cattle, agriculture, etc. In Andalusia , the poorest region of the Spanish peasantry, and in the regions of Chiriqui in Panama, where I exercised my Pastor as Vicar General of the East, I was a witness of this very process. The history of the Spanish conquest of Latin America written by the general chronicler of the Indies, Gonzalo Fernandez de Oviedo y Valdes, whose fifty (50) volumes are censored because her tells it like is, his publications only being allowed in 1835, taught me, for my doctoral thesis on the history of the discovery, the truth of the lamentable deeds and atrocities which both (the) ambitious soldiers and Catholic missionaries, with the Vatican's and the Catholic king's blessings, committed against the indigenous cultures. The present case in Chiapas, as well as the case of the poverty in Seville, Spain, in the poor quarters and areas of la Corza, Arbol Gordo, and Fontanal, of the municipal shelter under my authority

90

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

or charge, is a good example thereof. As a parish priest and economist of the 50,000 native Guaymies who were under my missionary responsibility, I presented a petition for assistance to the Panamanian Nuncio and primate and to the Spanish Nuncio and primate, to resolved the crisis and poverty of so many thousands of hungry souls who died in desperation and misery daily. I presented the following program, as that which is now being presented in Mexico, whereby I try to contribute to the solving of the natives' problem in Chiapas, to the nuncio and primate. . . and through them to Vatican 1. Cease to send the millions collected by the Spanish dioceses and their mercantilist businesses to the Vatican. Millions which rightfully should be dedicated to the erection of schools, hospitals, and community food centers, and to agricultural equipment, the just distribution of cattle, clothes, and medication to them that cultivate the lands. By this means a thousand million dollars could be reserved and justly administered by a committee of conscience. 2. All salaries of bishops, priests, and politicians, whose bank accounts are already overflowing with the alms and offerings of poor peasants, which, according to the teachings of Jesus Christ, should be distributed among the poor, should be checked. If this were effectively done, and the millions of dollars gathered in the basilicas, universities, parishes, sale of sacraments, monthly quotas, bingo games, raffles, sale of religious articles, productive investments, etc, rightfully applied and used, and deposited in a pro-native and pro-poor account, to be used accordingly, we would see the positive Christian results within a year. In this chapter an official audit would be taken regularly, and its

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 91 accountants diligently supervised and paid by an oversight committee of conscience. Do you have any idea of how many millions of dollars could by offered by the Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico and that of Spain? Or by the Basilica of Saint Peter and the Basilica of Pillar in Rome? You can get a good idea of it by just some simple calculations. If every Catholic offers $25 a year, and you multiply that by the 1,000,000,000 who claim to be Catholics, is it not true that the crisis in Chiapas, and the poverty of the impoverished zones, could be remedied therewith? 3. In the National budget we could include all those expenses which politicians, nuncios, and bishops divide among themselves in trips, conferences and feasts: Millions which solve nothing. This annual budget could preferably be applied to the problems of the starving, needy natives, which could no doubt be much better and more Christian than giving it to the privileged class, which bleeds the economy and contributes to the nation's poverty. 4. The objectives of the Nuncio and bishops, and of the governors and politicos who want (supposedly) to do away with the crisis in Chiapas and in other Mexican regions, shall never be carried out if they continue letting the Catholic Church to plunder, pillage and/or despoil the little that the poor and their hierarchies still have left to live as missionaries, who preach to the poor and give them examples, food, and economical and moral support.

THE FALSE HISTORY OF THE DISCOVERY OF AMERICA
The history of the Vatican's, and consequently of the Catholic Church's, business dealings and wealth has ever been changed, twisted and falsified by ecclesiastical historians and the Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian missionaries who, in the name of Christianity, came to seize the Patrimony, gold and silver of the natives' very rich mines. I don't affirm or come to this conclusion capriciously just because I want to belittle, slander, or discredit the church that educated me, though falsely; but only once [or after] I was able to document myself with a scientific doctorate in history, in the University of Madrid. In Gonzalo Fernandez de Oviedo's 50 volumes on the General History of the Indies, theme of my doctoral thesis, we can find the reality of the arrival of the Spaniards and their missionaries to the Americas well described, and the truth of the greedy conquerors' thirst for blood and loot expertly narrated. It's definitely not the same (as) the General History of the Indies which was written by the first bishops of Chiapas, nor is it the same history written by Franciscan, Jesuit, Dominican, and ecclesiastical chroniclers, who are all rich and would have us believe a history of Christian evangelization, when the truth is, as Oviedo, the official chronicler of the Indies, narrates, all the contrary: that is, a mortal blow to the thriving native cultures, and the armed looting by the missionaries and soldiers of some bishop Inquisitors and viceroys, whereof we can still contemplate the inhuman victimization,

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 93 impoverishment, and slaughter of the autochthonous races. Yea, Oviedo narrates this true history for us, and that's precisely why his books were censured and unpublished until 1895. The only history known to Catholics is censured, as all Catholic literature," and this has caused Catholic readers to be ignorant of the true history of the sad events which took place through the fanatical Catholics whom the immoral pope Alexander VI in the name of the Holy Roman/ Spanish Empire. In my data on these historic moments, I could find and mention the following. The bishops' residences and the houses of the religious orders, which are improperly called Christian missions, are not but a fountain of enrichment, proving that the majority of productive lands, livestock, treasures of minerals and cultural treasures were sacked and sent to Spain and the Vatican to construct the biggest of basilicas, Cathedrals, and the great houses of the Jesuits, Dominicans, Franciscans, etc, which cropped not up out of thin air, a you yourself can contemplate, but proceed of the riches looted from the Americas, the tithes imposed, and the treasures which the lords of the native nobility had, many of whom, for only being rightful owners of properties, died at the stake of the INQUISITION, after having their treasures and belongings confiscated: In my conferences in the Mexican States and in Latin America I am opening many consciences concerning the deceit we have suffered on account of this false Catholic history, and I admonish the believer of his individual obligation to study and acquaint himself with the other side of the money, that is, (with) the true history of the discovery

94

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

of the Americas. I will also warn my readers that the books which have been written on this truth don't exist in Spanish. Today, in the new democracies, which grant us liberty of expression, the truth of the discovery is become known, as well as the mercantilist intentions and Political-economic ambitions of the Vatican, who only uses the name of Christianity to enrich and benefit herself, as I am a witness to and can prove. I recommend the reader consult the documented work by Doctor Luis Rodriguez called "Catholics, Liberal Thinkers and Protestants, We Agree," a true history; doctrinal truth, page 301, chapter XV11, titled "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth" (Matthew 6:19). He enumerates with documentation, and numerically, the head of cattle, ecclesiastical pretends, and lands and estates of the dioceses and colleges of Tepeaca, Tepotzotlan, Ntra Senora de San Juan de los Lagos, and the dioceses of Puebla, where four fifths (4/5) of the rural property pertained to the clergy, and, as Historian Humbolt Calculated, the total property of the clergy in the New Spain was valued at some $260,000,000.00. The half of the property and capital (s) of all kinds existing were in the hands of the Vatican and her clergy.

NATIONAL-CATHOLICISM IN CHIAPAS, MEXICO
For a historian whose doctoral thesis he versed on Gonzalo Fernandez de Oviedo's . Oviedo was the official chronicler of the Spanish crown General and Natural History of the Indies, and who was a missionary in the native areas of Spain and Panama, and lived in different nations of Latin America for 25 years, preaching the gospel to the poor, to narrate the events which took place during the discovery of America, through the coming of the Spaniards commissioned by the Catholic kings and Pope, a historical event which changed the course of history and which this servant presents to obtain his doctor's degree in the Papal University of Madrid, is an easy thing to do. It is also easy for us to understand the sad political-religious situation that traverses one of Mexico's most problematic and rich regions: Chiapas, The Center of National Catholicism. From the arrival of the Catholic missionaries and the appointment of the first bishop, P. Las Casas, INQUISITOR GENERAL in Mexico, to the naming of Samuel Ruiz, Bishop of San Cristobal, the very same situation continues without remedy, that is to say, the exploitation of the Native, his disappearance, and the despoilment of his Patrimony and culture at the point of the gun. The cause of this so incongruous a Chiapan history is very easy to end, as it ended in the United States, Puerto Rico, and in all those other states which smartened up and expelled the Jesuits and politicized bishops, as Fidel Castro, the Communist tyrant of Cuba did, exiling them or s e ndi n g them back to their own nations. Out went the

96

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

force of subtle reason without arms, and a church of National Catholicism - helping the poor native reincorporate himself into society, not with words, but with actions. [This should not be taken as a defense of Fidel Castro's atheist dictatorship, who has transformed Cuba into a Maximum Security Prison in which the common masses are trampled under foot by a totalitarian, antichrist, unequal state which has done more or just as much evil as his predecessors, and is causing indescribable suffering to both his citizens and the exiles in America]. Social restructuring, returning lands unto their rightful owners, recompensing millions unto them to build and buy schools, Health Centers, agricultural implements, food, etc. In Panama's native zone of Chiriqui, when I was Vicarius of the 50,000 Indian Guaymies, I was able to incorporate, together with the government, thousands of them and take to the University, and if it had not been for CELAM of the Vatican's National Catholicism, which mockingly is called the Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith, these natives would have long ago been incorporated into Panamanian society. As soon as the Mexican government is well advised and not by bishops, Jesuits, and priests commissioned by National Catholicism, whose tactics and consignments are all designed to take over power in Mexico .

The legacy of P. Las Casas, whose hypocritical life as a bishop Inquisitor was dedicated to plundering and oppressing the poor natives, and to battling with the chronicler of the Indies for control over land and Indian

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 97 slaves, (you can read my doctoral thesis where I document these polemics, unedited and on microfilms in the university of Michigan) is about the same situation we are now contemplating in Mexico: and we can contemplate this very situation in any nation where the church of National Catholicism loses ground. In Chiapas, all the denunciations of the bishop and his rich Catholics are against Christian groups, whom they label as sects, prohibit entry into colleges, and even kill, in the same way they used to do during the epoch of the INQUISITION. We can understand that forty percent of Mexico has already left off being Catholic, (and) how statistics presented to the people by a compromised press and fanatical Catholics are deceitful, and that the battle of National Catholicism in Mexico is all but lost. Her lemma Chiapas the gospel of the poor, the church, justice, and truth is the biggest lie and deception which the Catholic Church could give. That's why Christian churches in Chiapas are excelling Catholic churches, and, hopefully, soon, shall end up erasing them from the Mexican map, as we see taking place throughout all of Latin and Brazil. National Catholicism, in these moments, is being conquered by the true church, "The Light of the World," a Mexican movement of Christian restoration which is the only solution to the problems of the natives in Chiapas.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND (THE) OPUS DEI: THE OWNERS OF THE FINANCES IN MEXICO
One of the most powerful economic and politicoreligion Institutions in the world, and which represents the Vatican's interests so thoroughly, is the Congregation of Opus Dei, or work of God in English. The Holy Mafia, so named by international bankers Monsignor Jose Maria Balaguer, founder of Opus Dei in the twentieth century, and St. Ignacio de Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, who have been the two great supports upon which the Vatican and Catholicism lean, and the cause of the political, economic, and educational empire that the Roman Catholic Church maintains in the world, is but an INQUISITORIAL CATHOLICISM that, hiding behind the shield of Christianity, we see by history has been but serving Mammon as its principle objective, and not precisely the Christian valves laid down by our Savior. I remember , in Spain, the arrival of Opus Dei's columns, and how the universities and other educational organisms of a Democratic Republic and wise secular teachers passed into their hands, who quickly began imparting their Catholic curriculum and Vatican consignments into [both] public and private teaching and controlling educational departments with an iron fist. I recall how, in the University Complutense of Madrid, when I did my doctoral thesis on education, all my teachers were from Opus Dei and the Teresianas. The democratic professors who resisted the Franco dictatorship were all either exiled or banished to the strange. During my second doctoral thesis on philosophy and letters in the Papal University of Comillas, also in Madrid, the Jesuits were both my

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN 99 teachers and the owners thereof. As is now taking place in Spain through the government of Aznar, so also in these very moments Vatican City is sending her most prepared and battle-hardened hosts to her unconditional servants of the Opus Dei. The consignments and objectives of Vatican state, as they've always been, are to take over all educational, the news media, companies and banks, etc. Many of these soldiers, with their thorough experience and training would put an end to Mexico's democratic government at the snap of the finger. Their members, as in Madrid, are already occupying advanced administrative positions in banks and educational departments, and they have the peculiar characteristic that they obey [blindly] the Vatican's direct orders, and not Mexican bishops'. The University of Navarra de Deuston, the most famous Catholic and nationalist university, has a handbook Manuel which has been translated into 39 languages, with 261 editions and 3.740.244 copies, published in 1949, which makes us see the Opus Dei vigor and strength in these moments. It's compromised and dedicated members, priests and secular humanists, with the same vows, are numbered in the thousands and have been carefully selected from among the rich and professional classes. I remember how many interests were held out as bait to invite me to join the ranks of Opus Dei in Seville, where I had the opportunity to visit its centers and know its organizations. The Vatican will not allow the lost of another war, as she had it lost in Spain with the previous democratically run government of Felipe Gonzalez, whereto priests, professors, and

100

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

intellectuals, who were forced into exile for opposing Franco's dictatorship and a church governed by the Vatican's fascist state, in Co hoots with Opus Dei politicians, returned. The Vatican in these very moments is sending hundreds of paid soldiers to Mexico under the lovely name of "Work of God," Opus Dei. A wealthy, political Catholic God who will progressively take over the reins of the government and its institutions and agencies. That's why with 29 of their members already in key government positions in the new government of Aznar, in Spain, they have already begun to win the already lost battle. The Opus Dei army, as the Mexican journalists San Juan a Martinez very truly writes in his article about Opus Dei (Proceso 30 June 1996) "amplifies itself in the social sphere, and besides its politicians, it now includes businessmen, financiers, judges, soldiers, editors, publishers, journalists, doctors, professors who see the opportunity to receive the institutional support of the present government. I could add, by my experiences in Spain, as a Christian monsignor and priest, and a doctor and historian of Christianity, that the Papal religious orders have been what have won the Vatican's political wars and saved her finances from bankruptcy. Don't forget what took place in Spain, Mexico, etc. The civil war, supported and fueled by Catholicism, is begun again!

THE POWERS OF THE JESUITS AND THE VATICAN'S RICHES
The society of Jesus (or the Jesuits) was founded by a Basque Spaniard named Inigo Lopez de Recalde, better known today as Ignacio de Loyola, in 1535 during some of the most notable moments of Spain's Golden Age. When these vanguard soldiers of Catholicism appeared, they manage to halt the Protestant Reformation considerably, direct the council of Trent, and save the corruption of the Vatican and a morally disintegrated church. Their participation in the Monarchial courts is legendary; their talented men, educated to the Basque mettle, a mixture of warriors, vanguard soldiers with Trojan discipline and Athenian wisdom, thousands of potentates, rich men of the most distinguished Spanish, French, and European nobility, are attracted by the Catholic-Christian ways of perfection of its founder, who was also a soldier and fighter in the battle fields. His Spiritual Exercises would be converted into the rule and canons of the Roman Church, who needed urgent reforms because of the degeneration to which she had by then come. The power that the Jesuits come to have in the Vatican, and in Universal Catholicism in general, and their contributions to the missionary, scientific world of the Vatican, we can still see today, seeing that they direct more than 400 reputable Papal Universities and secular institutes. Having received one of my doctorates in the Pontifical University of Spain, and being a teacher in her universities in different nations, of her Catholic-scholastic programs, and other educational organisms in Latin America, I am still a

102

Monseiior Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

witness in Mexico, the Iberian of the USA, of Loyola's legacy, etc. Actually there is no Vatican congregation where the PP Jesuits are not leaders: News Media's, the observatory Roman, Radio Vatican, Gregorian Universities, the cradle of all bishops graduated in theology, philosophy, history, canon law, etc. Not even the pope himself can engage in Cathedra nor travel without being accompanied by Jesuits. The Jesuits are indispensable to the Vatican's finances, and are masters in the pecuniary arts. One of the New York Time's Best Sellers is the book written by P.Jesuit Malachi Martin titled "The Jesuits the Society of Jesus and the Betrayal of the Roman Catholic Church," whereby you can get a much better understanding of the Society of Jesus power and history during the past 500 years. I just don't have the space in my brief articles to continue narrating its so formidable Political, Cultural, and warmonger labors in all the various nations. The Jesuits were Catholicism's right hand man until the coming of this Polish Pope, who was not accepted by them in the Gregorian and betrayed them in vengeance, as P. Malachi's book very well titles, turning most of their powers and confidence and preeminence over to (the) Opus Dei. In relation to this, journalist Juan Arias, in his book "Un Dios Para el Papa" ( pg. 125), very well says: "Is Wojtyla the pope of Opus Dei? Or is it the millions of another modern religious order, founded also by another Spaniard, J.M. Escriva, as revenge to the rebelliousness of many Jesuits after the Sad Second Vatican Council? To the writer Avro Manhattan, in his book "The Vatican in World Politics," "The Jesuits form an almost invincible army because of their four vows to the Vatican and for being

the leaders of clericalism in Spain. Formed during the age of the Catholic kings, they reigned supreme until the Franco Dictatorship, allied to the Vatican and backing her National Catholicism. The author, whom I recommend you read, documents the labors of Catholic proselytism [i.e., forced conversion in most cases] and its Political-social interventions in Spain, France, Austria, and Germany, its attacks against American institutions, its Martyrs for defending National Catholicism, in revolutions, at the cry of "He's Christ the king, its mobilization of guerrillas of the poor native cultures, (and) its displacement of Democratic Governments, as took place in Spain when the fascists arrived. And I was a personal eyewitness of the coming of Italian fascism and German National Catholicism thereto, and how the Vatican used her millions to buy arms and allies, and to consolidate the empire of National Catholicism: astute bankers, rich men with the vow of poverty, merchants, etc. Yea, the Jesuits, together with the Dominicans and Franciscans, have always been the columns which have sustained the Vatican and kept her from collapse upon her apostasy from genuine and authentic Christian.

WORLD MERCANTILISM AND ITS RELIGIOUS LEADERS
The power that the Catholic Church exercises throuh the whole world is due to various factors, which I have been able to study, in her long history as a Monsignor and doctor who has served her for forty years as a faithful slave. The first fact is the thousands of intellectuals selected in every diocese and educated in papal universities, such as the bishops, Monsignors, very obedient writers, and all those which believe in Papal infallibility and Rome's dogmatic canons, never mind that they might violate the most fundamental of human rights. These preeminent, privileged intellectuals are selected and in the majority of cases bought in every nation to be used and assigned to represent the political, economic, and educational interests of the Vatican, which satanically claims she is the exclusive representative of Christianity on earth, when she is of a truth the most diabolical lie, bloody monster and falsehood ever invented. Christians are followers of Christ, and not of the pagan empire of Romanist and baptized Baal worship maintain in the Roman Catholic Church. The writings of all these intellectuals, with [all] their Catholic-scholastic philosophies and mere speculations, have unfortunately infused the whole planet's bookstores, libraries, and catalogues of all languages, and are translated in the Universal News Media. The second factor which has also contributed so much to the spreading of Romanist is the use that the Catholic Church hath made of true Christians-Catholic Christians who, being obedient to the Vatican's interests, have refuse to separate themselves from her apostasies, no doubt fearing excommunication and the

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN

105

loss of their temporal power. There are thousands of genuine Christians who have refused to replace their apostate Catholic faith for a Christian, Bible believing, authentic faith in Jesus the Christ. In Catholicism's history we can study how the Roman Catholic Church has known how to use hundreds of stunborn Christian men and women, whose lives of Sanctity and examples of Christianity are truly admirable, for her own disastrous ambitions of Political power; riches, and the confounding of millions of believers in genuine Christianity in order to convert them to Catholicism, which is NOT Christianity. A very liberal pope, John XXIII, Pius X, several cardinals and bishops, whose Christian writings, evangelizations and founding of charity missions are so well known, are among some of Rome's members, whose fruits we clearly see today in the 20th century. I don't have enough space to recognize their labors of salvation, in (the) hospitals, monasteries, educational centers, parishes, etc. Many of them, including diocesan bishops, are removed from their charges never mind their regenerative social and other Christian labors only for willing to correct the so many abuses and corruption's of the Vatican and her Catholic Church, whom they refuse to serve, being silenced and, in many cases, mysteriously disappearing, never to be seen or heard from again. The Catholic Church's history carries many surprises [or shocks] for us, and whenever true Christian writers have by chance had the opportunity to pinpoint her political trajectory of alliances with the greatest of empires, which she has assisted in every country, never mind that they were Atheist states, religious persecutors, or fascist dictatorships, they

106

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

have been muzzled or murdered. Now that the Vatican has partially opened her top secrets archives, and permitted historians to scrutinize the fruits of this church, who wants to call herself Christian, they can not but see the true history of her deeds and separate her from authentic Christianity. She can only survive by means of her diabolical use of the intellectuals she brainwashes and graduates in her universities, which, in the same way as Marxist universities educate and fanaticize their leaders around the world, and as both Hitler and Mussolini also educated their youth [Hitler Youth], indoctrinate them into believing that the Catholic Popes and other hierarchies are superman destined to change humanity into their own image. Even so Rome's second Vatican council, despising the previous intellectuality, of what it considered mediocre intellectuals, desired to create a NEW Christian who would with time adjust to the new INTERNATIONAL SOCIALISM, a new Christianity more in line with the terrestrial exigencies of an worldly parodies governed by Vatican city than the Bible, finishing off the Christianity very clearly preached by Christ, of a new creature saved by grace through faith (EPHESIANS 2:8) - the real solution to the crisis and disaster in which we now live.

THE CORRUPTION OF THE OPUS DEI In the Bank Ambrosiano scandal mentioned earlier,
the biggest participator therein was Opus Dei. Thus we see that Berti, the key to understanding the truth of the money laundering in Venezuela, was replaced as head of Unecclesia by the Bishop of the Opus Dei, Francisco de Guruccago, 65, auxiliary of Caracas since 1973. Berti was allocable to reveal that another Bishop from Opus Dei, Jose Joaquin Troconis, 51, auxiliary of Valencia in Venezuela, got a woman pregnant and was forced to contract a marriage with her. And finally, to Berti money laundering could be used for republic works as the construction of bridges, expresses, and plots in Caracas. Italian firms, as that of Alliance and la de Vianini (close to Giulio Andreotti, who is being investigated for his ties to the Mafia), were also involved. To Berti the immense amounts of money of the Opus Dei came mostly from Spain and were sent off to solidarity in Poland during Martial Law. It explains the preponderance of Opus Dei in the Vatican's financial departments, Berti affirms that he is known by the Pope John Paul II, but was better known by Paul VI, with whom he met 20 times. Italian courts investigating long term relationships or associations. The recognized Vatican's journalist Juan Arias, in his informative book Un dios Para el Papa (A God for the Pope), on page 125, asks himself, is Wojtyla the pope of the Opus Dei? In his very interesting study, he confirms it and documents his ties and sympathies with/for the Opus Dei and not with the Jesuits.

108

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

The Opus Dei, which was trying to take the reins and control of the Catholic Church without success, was the one which elevated Wojtyla to the Cardinality, and whose money later helped him occupy the papacy. It was they and their multinational enterprises' millions which have made it possible for National Catholicism once again to take over the bishopric's, Nunciatures, Episcopal conferences in Latin America, etc. and as he very well tell us, "The Opus Dei, in its line of occupation, for the good of the church, used to prepare itself into four very concrete camps (the economic, social communications, the universities, and canon law studies) because in those days, before the Vatican II council, it was all but impossible to ordain a priest who had not obtained such a doctorate. I was a witness in Spain of how they obtained these objectives by offering Franco the "easy way." I recall that all my teachers in the universities complutense were Opus Dei members, and how those who were professors for life and the best teachers - if they opposed the tyrant church - were expelled. And as in Latin America, Opus Dei Bought up the News Media and other information outlets. By this means they are able to destroy democracies and progressively take over their minds and hinder their human rights progresses. Aries refers to it thus, "The Opus Dei amplified itself economically." Franco gave them the Ministries and departments, the keys to the economy, bank funds [both] within and without Spain, entered the companies, captured the most distinguish key men in the economy in her webs, and thereby create his dictatorial empire. His scandals, as those of Matesa, made his own organizatin's members

doubt his sanctity. Banco popular Espanol (Spanish Popular Bank) was by then already the principal bank of the Opus Dei. We could run into fourteen other banking institutions, under the umbrella of the popular Bank, the Atlantic Bank, and the Rumasa group. It was known (also) that more than twenty (20) banks besides pertained to Opus Dei in Spain alone, without even counting the subsidiaries and affiliates in Latin America. Yea, Opus Dei's actions and fruits clearly show that it can not be a part of Christ's true Church, which was poor, persecuted, and without material interests. Once Opus Dei's true intentions became popularly known by the people, it was surnamed as being like white Masonry, the Holy Mafia, Octopus of God, secret service of the Pope, fifth column, etc. Yea, and it was also accused of being in connivance with Latin American dictatorships, belonging to the C.I.A., possessing interests in some of the greatest multinational interests (including some of doubtful morals), and of having intimate, strait contacts to the most far right Masonic organisms and secret services of various countries. I recall once being visited in the university of Seville and invited to become a member of the Opus Dei. . .

ENTREPRENEURS AND LEADERS OF CATHOLIC POWER
The most pernicious of lies that the Roman Catholic Church has used during the centuries to confuse the values existing between Catholic believers, who can't distinguish between what Christianity is and what Catholicism is, and consequently the corruption of Catholic Christianity from the fruits of true Christianity, is her scholastic ideologies as employed in the education of her monsignors, bishops, and hierarchies scattered around the whole world to corner shrewdly the few riches which remain in all countries of the world. I am a Christian doctor and monsignor who has dedicated his whole life to understanding the true histories of both Christianity and its impostor, Catholicism. It has taken me a whole life of preparation, with my doctorates and master in divinity, occupying the most varied academic charges in universities and their programs, as a writer of textbooks, etc, in order to be able to clearly distinguish and affirm the differences which exist between the academic degrees awarded in papal universities to her clergy, who are prepared thoroughly to attack at their opportunity, in order to spoil the riches of nations and send them off to their mistress, the Vatican, and the academic degrees granted in civil universities. Some being scientific doctors, others ecclesiastical, papal, scholastic. So many clerics, who occupy the most privileged positions of doctors in canon law, doctors in philosophy, in history, theology, liturgy, and sacred scriptures in the dioceses, and with their arrogant diplomas displayed in their offices, and

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
111

monsignors certified for paying thousands of dollars to the Vatican, etc, have demonstrated that they approve the requisites of many courses taught in these universities, which are based on Catholic scholastic philosophies, that it's appalling. The Vatican converts all these graduates, who come to us from papal universities around the globe, into high-handed leaders; naughty men who think they know everything, when it's all the contrary, seeing that the scholastic philosophies taught in Vatican institutions are irrational and violate the most minimal principles of natures laws and individual conscience. They respect not human rights, and preach a pseudo Christianity composed of but mere Catholic speculations and theories, which, as they very well say in Mexico, "Answer not to Scientific Reality." That's why these papal graduates and Diplomatic confuse the magnesia with the gymnasium when they speak. Their conferences, books, Preaching, and conduct, upon wanting to become spiritual guides, interpreters and teachers of Jesus Christ's message of salvation, and to validate their scholastic credentials, are not recognized in civil universities. They have no academic value. I myself would attribute the greater part of the so sad situation wherein we live today, in the 20th century, to believing that these bishops and monsignors, graduated clerics who come to us from Vatican institutions to occupy the top positions in the entire world's dioceses and cathedrals, are scientific or reliable teachers, and it's "NOT" so. They are teaching us historical falsehoods about Christianity,

112

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

biblical exegesis and hermeneutics the worst that could ever have come to us who believed in the Catholicscholastic Christianity. These papal graduates have been lavished with so many titles, and the list of cardinals, bishops, monsignors and doctors is so big, that I've collected some very appalling intellectual statistics of conceited elements, ignorant bishops and vicars, false chancellors and teachers, who are destroying the little Christianity remaining in the Roman Church. They have converted her with their scholastic falsehoods, which prove nothing, and whose fruits are not but the present [spiritual] bankruptcy we are now witnessing. These Vatican graduates are rich capitalists who are commissioned by the Pope himself, and selected for their unconditional obedience: Rich men established in the Pontifical yearbook, whose mission is to attain all the power you could ever imagine, forgetting Christ.

THE FASCIST CONCORDATS OF HITLER AND MUSSOLINI: MULTIMILLIONAIRE GAINS
Under the papal administrations of Popes Pius X, Pius XI, Pius XII, Paul VI, and John XXEI the INQUISITION has been revived under the name of the holy office. These Popes have dedicated their papacies to persecuting the reformers, theologians, and exegete of the Catholic Church herself. They invented the "INDEX" to prohibit Catholics from reading the books, magazines, and all other writings not having the approval of the ecclesiastical censure of Rome, excommunicating them and charging them with mortal sin. This is how Rome has ever kept her poor Catholic followers ignorant of the best authors and their very enlightening works, Christians who have desired to reform the Vatican's corruption's. The history of these Popes political and financial interventions, etc, have made Vatican city the richest state on the planet. The history of Pope Pious XII experiences in Nazi Germany, and the treaties and alliances of his bishops and their blessings of fascism, are now all well known. It was appointed unto me to live during this epoch, when the Vatican's fascist hosts and militant fanatics arrived in Spain with their millions, sacking the Spanish Republic and imposing the dictatorship of Franco and his Spanish Phalanges Movement, the black and blue shirts of the Italian , and the black wear dresses who came to dominate Europe. In these moments we see that the Vatican's alliances, pacts, and concordats with [ today ] democracies don't check, since the Vatican or National

114

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

Catholicism is still a millennial dictatorship which hypocritically presents herself as a theocratic democracy. Her deeds in present day Latin America, seeing that she can not do them in Europe now, show that she is once again leading nations to a Neo-Nazi epoch of ultra rights and American Capitalism. Her fascist concordats with Germany, Italy, and Spain clearly demonstrate just what the Vatican and her treaties really are a sovereign political state (not as apolitical Church of Christ) that receives the following privileges: exemption from taxes, exemption from military service for her clerical legions, diocesan clergy, and religious. (This servant was relieved of mandatody military service during the draft because of my seminary student statues) with the Lateran Treaty the church is also given diplomatic immunity, and her ambassadors are named deans and senior members of the diplomatic corps. They are also given exemption from import tariffs, and that's why, in the diplomatic bags of her delegates and diplomats, can be found DRUGS, laundered money, etc. She is also permitted to install broadcasting stations, newspapers, etc, which are independent, carrying out her agenda, and censored by civil authority. The Pope will be equipped as chief of state, and thus he is honored and treated in all nations he visits. The Vatican is bestowed the Character of a sacred city. She thus imposes her religious doctrines in Italy, Germany, and in ALL countries of Latin America which subscribe to or sign the pacts and concordats already preestablished by the Vatican and her papal Nuncios. The church also has her exclusively in legislating Catholic marriages and moral conduct; and governors and political parties that don't back her ecclesiastical laws on divorce, contraceptives, canonical and dogmatic

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN
115

decrees, celibacy, feasts to be celebrated and observed, tithes, sacramental impositions, etc, are excommunicated and damned to eternal fires. The Lateral Treaty gave the Vatican two thousand million lives and 80 million dollars, which money the pope turned over to a certain banker and financial wizard named Bernardino Nogara to administer and transfer in Swiss, English, and America banks. He was the foundation of the immense financial power that the Vatican flaunts today, and a reason that the Vatican is the ricchest state on earth, bar none, and one of the biggest moneylenders [i.e, usurers] to banks and multinational enterprises on earth Thus even Mussolini himself borrows money ("the borrower is servant to the lender," Proverbs 22:7) from the Vatican, as well as all the major fascist and Catholic parties of that day. The banks, companies, businesses, and brokerages which the Vatican possesses today are enumerated at about 5000, and you yourself can know them in the prestigious English magazine "The Economist" (1965), which assures us that the pope presides over the leading stock society of the world, with a capital of $3,900 million dollars [in America alone]. You yourself can know about her businesses and actions. Naturally the Vatican has tried to deny it, used fronts, and LIED about her formidable financial potency, but the so many scandals and corruption of her hierarchies clear up the truth, as I demonstrate.

THE CONCORDATS INCREASE HER POWER
The Vatican's treaties, alliances, and concordats with governments or political parties, never mind what their ideologies may be, as long as she gets her share, are also a big source of enrichment to her finances. All through history, since the emperor Constantine's time unto this very day, the Vatican's political state has benefited through her pacts, concordats, and alliances. Through these concordats (with) states and political parties, the Catholic Churches are guaranteed their privileges and constitutional rights as any other nation. At the same time as the church commits herself to staying out of political affairs (we already know she never keeps her promises and alliances) her pulpits have throughout history been political cathedrals, and the churches centers for the political reunions of Catholic-fascist associations. The Vatican's treaties and concordats are models of diplomatic genius and of surprising advantages for National Catholicism, which has survived the storms of history by exercising her [political] powers in the nations in the name of Christianity, benefiting, enriching, and politicizing herself shamelessly. We know that in every civil constitution the religious aspect of its voters and citizens has the capacity for generating problems or friction between civil and religious laws. They should be overcome or rectified with the concordats; but it isn't so. Revolutions and their origins are born of the Catholic Church's failure to comply with the laws and compromises she's made with governments and political parties.

THE POWER OF THE VATICAN

117

Leon XIII, the pope political par excellence, upon talking about these concordats, says: 'A concordat. . . Greatly strengthens the state authority and the papal," and these always "offer the church (as) a muchneeded protection to the rulers of Europe." The Vatican's concordats are always careful to have civil backing and the laws in her favor, to accommodate her interests of world conquest. In the case when concordats with secular governments don't exist, and which keeps church and state separated, the nuncios sign a compromise with the government (with no need of concordats) where the ways for a modus vivendi are established; that is to say, as in Mexico and in Spain, in the epoch of democracies and of separation of church and state, we can consult these treaties and note the scholastic genius and subtle wisdom utilized to attain the joint ownership of properties which the Catholic Church and her unscrupulous lawyers and canonists always manage to include in all treaties. As an example of a concordat that the Vatican would sign with the fascist dictatorships of Italy, Germany, German National Socialism, the USA, or any other European countries like Spain, I am going to copy some of the articles of one so you can see the reality of a church that calls herself Christian, but whose interests are political, worldly ambitions, which she ever subscribes to. The concordat signed on the 28th of August 1953 between the Holy See and the Spanish Government of General Franco mentions, in 35 articles, what the Catholic Church, the Vatican and Franco's fascist dictatorship agree to. These same concordats are repeatedly signed with governments called Catholic, for Mussolini and Hitler were both

118

Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen

good Catholic boys. In like manner the Latin American dictatorships of Chile, Argentina and, in these moments Nicaragua and even atheist Cuba herself are preparing to sign concordats which will make the Vatican the most overbearing state known on earth, with her team of plenipotentiaries and millennial experiences in international politics. She will manage what no other nation nor empire on earth has been able to pull off: substantial international agreements and concordats with the backing of millions of Catholic members, 75% of whom believe in nothing really. The new concordats between the Holy See and the government of President Salinas and the present Zedillo, who are big devotees of papal blessings and (of) Mexican bishops and nuncios, don't come to the public light will not come to the public light until exposed by their fruits, in the same way as their pacts with drug trafficking and other corruption's are maintained in secrecy. But the citizenry, only or just from their actions, comprehends that when the new Spanish nuncio talks about politics, social problems, the conference of Bishops, and religious orders as the Opus Dei etc, with such authority as he does, and contempt for constitution laws of the nation, he is clearly demonstrating that parts already exists: a concordat and several alliances favorable to Catholicism and to the toppling of democracies.

THE UNABRIDGED TEXT OF THE CONCORDAT (SIGNED) BETWEEN FRANCO AND THE HOLY SEE
The unabridged text of the concordat signed August 28, 1953 between the Holy See and the Spanish Government of General Franco. I copy out of Gin's de Haro's book El Govierno de la Iglesia Catholic (The Government of the Catholic Church), Appendix, pgs. 210. 223. "In the name of the most Holy Trinity: The Apostolic Holy See and the Spanish State, animated by the desire to assure a faithful collaboration for the greatest good of [both] the religious and civil life of the Spanish nation, have determined to stipulate a agreement , resuming past agreements and completing them, constitutes the norm that is to regulate the reciprocal relations of the contracting high parties, in conformity with the law's) of God and the Catholic traditions of the Spanish nation. To this end, his holiness Pope Pious XII has had a monde to name for his plenipotentiary monsignor Dominic Tardini, pro-secretary of state (I remember him being responsible for the extermination of my cardinal and several other Seville priests for rebuking the concordat) for extraordinary ecclesiastical affairs, and his excellency the chief of the Spanish State, Don Francisco Bahamonde, has had a mind to name his plenipotentiaries the most excellent Sir Martin Artajo, minister of foreign affairs, and the most excellent don Fernando Maria Castiella y Maiz, ambassador of Spain close to the Holy See, who, after their respective plenipotentiaries are given up (i.e., resigned), and recognized and authenticity of the same, have agreed to the

The ordinary and extraordinary negotiations of goods pertaining to ecclesiastical entities or religious associations and the vigilance and inspection of said negotiation's) of goods shall go to the competent authorities of the church there is why her financial reality is not known). Article 5. The state shall consider festive the days established as such by the church in the canon law code or in other particular dispositions on local festivities, and shall provide by legislation the necessary facilities so that the faithful can fulfill their religious duties on these days civil authorities, both national and local, shall watch for the necessary observance of rest on festive days. Article 6. According to the concessions of the high pontiffs Saint Pious V and Gregory XIII, Spanish priests will daily lift up prayers for Spain and the chief of state (I.e, Franco), according to traditional formula and the prescriptions of the Holy liturgy. Article 7. For the appointment of residential archbishops and bishops and of coadjutors with (the) right of succession, the norms [or rules] of the concordat stipulated between the Holy See and the Spanish Government on June 7, 1941 will continue governing. (I remember that (as) I prepared myself it was necessary for me to be compromised (or dedicated) to the Vatican's fascist National Catholicism and to have a doctorate in the Papal university). Article 8. The Priorato Nullius of the military orders shall continue subsisting in the royal city. (That is to say, The Vatican's military host. I myself was a Lieutenant, and my cardinal a general of the army. National Catholicism's military powers, with their armaments and multimillion dollar budgets, is formidable). For the appointment of bishop prior, the rules refereed to in the previous article shall be applied. Article 9-1. In order to avoid, insofar as possible, the dioceses from taking territories belonging to diverse civil

provinces, the chief parties to the contract shall proced, as mutual agreement, to a revision of (the) diocesan districts (I remember how they divided my archdiocese of Seville among the Vatican's Sympathizers). Thus the Holy See, in agreement with the Spanish Government, shall take the necessary steps to eliminate the enclaves (That is to say, the bishops or other hierarchies who opposed the dictatorship). No part of the Spanish territory or of Spain's sovereignty shall depend on bishops whose headquarters (or sees) are found in territories which are in subjection to the sovereignty of any other state, and no Spanish diocese shall recognize any area or territory subject to the sovereignty of foreign countries, with the exception of principality of Andorra, which will continue pertaining to the diocese of Urge. 9-2. To erect a new diocese or ecclesiastical province, and to make other diocesan district changes which may be deemed necessary, the Holy See shall come to an agreement with the Spanish Government beforehand, unless it deals with minute territorial rectification's reclaimed for the good of souls. 9-3. The Spanish state is committed to proving the economic necessities of dioceses which are erected in the future, adequately increasing the funding established in art. 19 (millions of pesetas of the National budget). Thestate, moreover, through itself, or by means of interested local corporations, shall contribute with an extraordinary subsidy to the initial expenses of the organization of new dioceses. In particular it shall subsidize the contribution of the new cathedrals, the buildings destined for the prelates' residences (palaces), the offices of the curia, and the diocesan seminaries out of the local and national budget. Article 10. In the provision of non consistorial benefits, Article 11. The ecclesiastical authority shall be able to liberally erect new parishes and modify the limits of those already existing. When these measures entail an increase of the state's economic aid, the ecclesiastical authority must

come to an agreement with the competent state authority for that which reformers to said aid. (I was the first parish priest of our Lady of Rest, in Seville, and neither I nor my poor parishioners were ever repaid one centavo). Articles 12 to 16 The Catholic Church is guaranteed everything related to (the) curriculums and pedagogical methodology to be used in national education. I was and am a witness, as the Doctor I am in education, of how the Church takes over Education in any nation through legions of Jesuit, Dominican, and Opus Dei teachers. All liberal or non catholic teachers or elements were eliminated. The influence of National Catholicism in the entire world, esp. With these Concordats, has been so harmful and nefarious that we can honestly say that the false Catholic-scholastic education which we received at her hand has caused us to fall behind in comparison with other countries and plunged us into the spiritual and (consequently) the material crisis in which we exist today, the Catholic Church, the MOTHER OF ABOMINATIONS, being the Chief Culprit. This concordat was signed in Vatican City on August 28, 1953. This concordat enriches the Vatican's finances and is just one more proof of the robbery and craftiness which impoverish the nations of the world.

CONCLUSION
The Vatican is just another Political Party, and National Catholicism, when it's convenient, is just an extreme right, extreme left, moderate, or Capricious Party with the sole objective of staying in power and monopolizing as many riches as possible, both of her ignorant parishioners and of the equally ignorant Political, religious, educational, financial, or Press Parties; all of which have allowed themselves to be manipulated by the Vatican's representatives. The Vatican's National Catholicism is the richest and most powerful Catholic Political Party in the world. I will demonstrate this by realizing a sample statistic that anyone who desires to do so can verify. According to the Vatican herself, they count on same 1 billion Catholics. If we were to say that their offerings and alms were at least a minimum of one dollar a day, taking into account that there are 365 day a year, we would have a whopping annual sum of $365,000,000,000.00 dollars a year in only minimal offerings. We must also take into account the Collection boxes and piggy banks that every saint has in the entrances to all churches. The Catholics, from cradle to grave, and then beyond, are but business commodities used by THE MOTHER OF ABOMINATIONS so her Popes and hierarchies can live tge dolche vitta, in sin, vice, corruption, and pervesion, persecuting Jesus Christ's true sheep, instigating wars, crusades; and as John very well says in Revelation 17:3-6 a woman decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abomination and filthiness of her fornication and drunken with the blood of the Saints (Christians), and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus." "COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, that You be not partakers of her sins, and that You receive not of her plagues....).
